Before You Start

  • Most of the time, you’ll be on a sunny rocky terrain with almost no shadow. Take a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water.
  • The path is rockier than one would expect based on its altitude.
  • While you’ll inevitably meet tourists wearing goofy shoes, that doesn’t mean they made a good choice. You’ll be more comfortable in decent hiking boots (and your ankles will be grateful).

Getting There

  • Park at the end of the valley. Alternatively, leave the car at any public parking lot (a half-dozen of them are scattered around the valley) and use Logarska Dolina Trail to hike to the start of our hike.
  • Take the wide trail toward the Rinka waterfall.
  • After admiring the waterfall, cross the bridge and follow the red hiking sign for Okrešelj.
  • Stay on the hiking path until you reach the mountain hut.
  • After a well-deserved break, continue hiking for a few minutes toward Kamniško Sedlo to reach the beautiful meadows with fantastic views.
