Tržič Alpine Trail
Summit to summit loop trail above Tržič
The Tržič Alpine Trail was planned out in the spring of 1991. It is a 60-kilometre-long loop trail that passes by 10 checkpoints and can be completed by a hiker in suitable physical condition in 5 to 6 days. You can mark the successful completion of the trail by stamping your hiking diary at the checkpoints, and find personal satisfaction primarily in the spectacular mountain scenery and gorgeous views.

Five to six days of hiking
You will need five to six days to do the Tržič Alpine Trail in one trip. The trail, which is also known as T24, is the most difficult mountain ultramarathon in Slovenia. But take your time, enjoy the peace and quiet of the forests, the colourful alpine meadows in full flower, and the panoramic rocky summits.
The trail starts in Tržič. You can leave your car at the municipal car park or at the Tržič Olympians Arena, then follow the trail clockwise with ascents of the following peaks: Dobrča (1634 m), Begunjščica (2060 m), Vrtača (2181 m), Košutica (1968 m), Veliki Vrh Košute (2088 m), Kladivo (2094 m), Košutnik Tower (2133 m), Stegovnik (1692 m), Storžič (2132 m) and Tolsti Vrh (1715 m).
