The Konšca Thematic Trail is a unique route that presents life on isolated mountain pastures.

"Konšca" or Konjščica is a wooded plateau rising steeply above the precipitous walls of the Dovžan Gorge. It slopes gently upwards to the foot of Javornik like a horse's back, with the pasture in the saddle (the Slovene word for "horse" is konj, hence the name). At the top, just below the treeline, at the saddle between the valleys of the Tržič Bistrica and the Lomščica, the traveller stands for a moment above the watershed and sees himself in the reflection of the water in the midst of a chain of mountains. The tall pyramid of Storžič is to the south, the ridge of Košuta to the north, and in between ..."Konšca", the horse's back. Part of the thematic trail across Konšca can also be experienced on a mountain bike.

good to know
In the summer months the pastures are grazed by livestock, so be sure to close gates behind you and take care not to startle the animals by going too fast.
