Soča Trail: from Lepena to Kršovec

From the confluence of the Lepenca and Soča rivers, the Soča Trail continues along the valley to Kršovec where it joins the Bovec Walking Trail. The path starts at the Klin Campsite. Cross the bridge over the Lepenca just before the stream meets the Soča. In this part the Soča calms down and widens, its bed extending into wide stretches of pebble. The trail runs past the confluence of the two rivers, where an information board with data on the Marble Trout is put up, and across meadows from which numerous tiny fishermen's paths wind rightwards to the river from the meadows nearby. After about 30 minutes of walking, there is a footbridge under military bunkers, which takes the trail to the right bank of the Soča.

The Soča, fortified by the Lepenca, forms deep, turquoise pools which are a true challenge to fly-fishers. The trail proceeds between the road and the Soča river, although the presence of the road is barely noticeable. 

Access: by car to Penzion Kamp Klin or to the car park on the right side of the road to Lepena. As the trail is not circular, use of bus is recommended.

Estimated time: 1.30h for this part of the Soča Trail.
