Soča Trail: Marka bridge - small troughs of the Soča

This part of the Soča Trail starts at Markov most (Marka Bridge). Park your car at Gostilna Metoja and walk along the main road to the Triglav Campsite, then turn onto the road descending left towards the campsite just before the bridge. From there, the trail runs straight along the left bank of the river. You will walk through forests, across meadows and pastures, past rockslides, near or above the river, never losing sight of the majestic mountain peaks rising above the valley. This portion of the trail boasts four footbridges which can shorten the course of the trail significantly. This end of the trail is extremely picturesque as it runs through highly diverse and rich landscape. At several points, you can step down to the river and have a peaceful rest in the shade of a giant boulder or a tree. Two information boards have been put up, providing visitors with information on rockslides and vegetation.

As you near the end of this part of the Soča Trail, the path rises steeply to a small waterfall. You will reach the waterfall after about 20 minutes of walking, and descend from there to the Jelinčič Tourist Farm (Turistična kmetija Jelinčič) and the small troughs of the Soča.

Downstream from this point sport fishing on the Soča is permitted.

Access: by car to the car park at Gostilna Metoja, by bus to the Triglav Campsite. As the trail is not circular, use of bus is recommended.

Estimated time: 2.30h for this part of the Soča Trail.


Trail runs through meadows...

... and forests.
