The Trail
Stage 7

Kozjak Pass - GEOSS

We commence at Kozjak Pass (658m) in the Tuhinj Valley. Our steep uphill climb begins with forest paths. After 500m the forest path turns into a beautiful meadow road for 1.6km. The road merges into an easy walking trail for about 2.4km, which brings us to a Partisan monument and an idyllic meadow (894m) at the day's highest point.

From here we start descending to Blagovica (412m) in Črni graben (Black Gorge). It’s a long and beautiful descent with a mixture of paths, forest roads and a little asphalt. Črni graben and the surrounding hills are historically famous for the Rokovnjači robbers of the 18th and 19th centuries. Here we cross the old national Ljubljana-Vienna road and pass under a new highway.

The path to Golčaj (690m) is very steep but well made. Golčaj has a local church dedicated to Saint Agnes and a Partisan monument dedicated to Radomeljsko ceto, one of the first Partisan groups killed by the Nazis in 1941.

We continue on an easy walking path in the direction of Hrastnik, descending to the main road between Moravče and Izlake (410m). It's beautiful walking the forest roads and trails.

Our last ascent is along an asphalt road followed by a climb on a path through woods and meadows until we reach our destination in GEOSS (450m).

This walk takes around 6 hours.
