Notes

  • Start at a large car park in Kal-Koritnica and follow the signs for Golobar along a rocky two-track that eventually turns right, transforms into a footpath, and brings you to a huge boulder blocking Soča.
  • Use a hanging bridge to cross the river. Continue following the signs for Golobar and hiking waymarks. Although the waymarks tend to be sparse, there are signs at most forks. Whenever in doubt, take the path/track going up.
  • Once you reach the edge of the first meadow, keep on the path to reach the second meadow of the Golobar pasture with a tiny WWI cemetery.
  • From that meadow, follow the signs for Zaprikraj/Drežnica to reach the upper parts of the Golobar pasture and the Čez Utre saddle. Enjoy the views ;)
  • We returned on the same path. In theory, you could descend into Čezsoča (another marked trail) and then use the paths along the Soča river to get back to the starting point.
