🇸🇮 Slavnik from Podgorje (steep path)

Since the overabundance of cohesion funds helped transform the old dirt track to Slavnik into a gravel road, I prefer to take the steeper footpath ascending directly toward the peak.

In a Nutshell

  • Park in Podgorje
  • Follow the waymarks and signs for Slavnik until you reach a fork at the center of the village
  • To hike on the steeper footpath, take the narrow steeply-ascending road going left. Continue on the main road (right) if you prefer the leisurely hike on a gravel road.
  • Waymarks along the wide footpath will safely guide you through a sparse forest and across sunny meadows to the mountain hut on Slavnik.
  • Don’t worry about getting lost – there are dozens of footpaths leading to the top. As long as you’re walking on a reasonably-well-trodden ascending trail, you’ll get there.
