Trail of breathtaking views of Lake Cerknica.
Elevation profile of the route
The Drvošec trail starts at the Rešeto swallets and finishes approximately 500 metres before the bridge in front of the village of Otok. It mainly goes through the forest and is 3.7 km long (one way), making it ideal for anyone (remember to wear appropriate hiking gear).
The trail is home to several educational points, enhancing the experience of exploring the pristine nature of Lake Cerknica. The observation platforms "Kuharca" and "Klejni vrh" along with the observation tower "Otočec" (10 metres high) offer the most valuable vistas of this karst phenomenon. The exceptional dimensions of the site can be easily viewed from these locations.
The trail is marked with a bird (bittern) icon, which you can follow on the markings on the pillars throughout the trail.
