Born Trail to the mountain pasture of Preval
Through Born Tunnel to masovnek and porridge
The mountain pasture of Preval is a favourite destination on the southern slope of Begunjščica. The picturesque, easy, unmarked trail takes you from Ljubelj through the Born Tunnel to a mountain pasture at an elevation of 1311 m. You can also climb up to it from the Podljubelj Valley or the Draga Valley, or you can descend to it from Roblek Mountain Hostel on Begunjščica. From the south, from Dobrča, there is a marked trail over rolling terrain. It is an intermediate point along the Slovenian Mountain Trail and the long-distance hiking trail Via Alpina.

The pasture sees lots of visitors in summer since it is an excellent hiking destination for all generations, for young families as well as for the older population. The route is exposed in places and protected with steel cables, so keep an eye on the little ones and those who are prone to vertigo. A gravel road goes from the Draga Valley across the mountain pasture of Planinica, and so the pasture is also an attractive destination for mountain bikers.
For those wanting a more challenging route and additional adventures, we suggest returning via Roblek Mountain Hostel on Begunjščica, along the northern side of Begunjščica and past Zelenica Mountain Hostel.
