Loška Trail

It leads from the center of Dobrna through the health resort complex along the road to Klanc, where the vineyards are on the slopes. The path climbs to the village of Loka pri Dobrni. The valley of Loke is characterized by a karst world with red-brown soil “terra rossa”, with sinkholes, seepage water and even a karst cave, called Osrečanova zvonica. The path continues past Čerjak’s chapel towards the valley of mills, where on the way there are more than 300 years old remains of mills, namely Gregorjev, Petračev, Sedevšekov and two Vovk mills. The most preserved is the more than 450-year-old upper Vovk mill, which in the past milled grain for the needs of Kačji Grad castle. Since 2007, the renovated mill allows us to see the operation of the mill and the mill tariff, which was in force before the Second World War. The mill with its surroundings is especially interesting for tourists who, when viewing a mill by the stream in a quiet valley, can breathe fresh air and relive the fragment of the past that Pungartnik family managed to preserve. Those who swear by home-made products can enjoy the offer of freshly milled flour and, if desired, home-made bread as well as some other of the land’s gifts.

Continue on the marked path to the Lamperček Homestead, where you will see deer and refresh yourself with homemade delicacies. The path will then lead you to the Blažiš family home, where you will find an interesting collection of antiques – old bicycles, sabers, objects from everyday life and old pictures of Dobrna with its surroundings. When you see the ruins of Kačji Grad, you will continue along the marked path back to the valley, past the ponds to the Novi Grad castle in Lokovina, and if you turn left, you will again be in the center of Dobrna.
