Route

GO3V 28km 1700+

Go4trail - Go3V unique route takes you over three peaks above Nova Gorica

Start at the kajak centre in Solkan. The route takes place along the Soča river under the bridges, followed by a climb along the asphalt to Solkan.We rush towards the top of Škabrijel, at the first water refreshment point we turn right down the trail. Signs lead us along the track to the crossroads at the first refeshment at Vratca, where we turn left along the ditches, which take us to the top of Škabrijel. The track continues along the ridge of Škabrijel. The track continues along the ridge of Škabrijel. Then descend to the road Nova Gorica - Lokve (Prevala), cross the roundabout and continue uphill towards the top of Svete gora. After 300 metres of asphalt path, turn onto the MTB cycle path. After a short climb you arrive at the Belveder -friends of TSC MTB refreshment point with a beautiful view of the valley. We continue towards the cavern, where we enjoy a run with a head torch and carefully continue our experience through the 280 metre long cavern from World War I. We then follow the mountain path up the north side of Sveti Gora to the statue of St Francis and continue along the ridge to the Basilica of Sveti Gora. Descend the stairs to the car park across the road to the beautiful forest path to Preški vrh. Turn left along the macadam path and after a while turn left onto a beautiful forest track descending the slope of Sveti Gora to the water spring.Continue along the forest path to a small slope which suddenly drops off to the right (be careful, as the path is quite steep and slides a lot in the wet), reach the Primula restaurant, where in a while you pass the tennis courts under the bypass to the Solkanski railway bridge, where you drop off to the right under a stone archway of the Solkan railway bridge. Before the start area, we turn into a refreshment area before boarding a boat- raft to cross the Soca River. After a short climb, we arrive at the cycle path towards Kanal ob Soči and after 2.5 km of asphalt, we turn left onto a forest path towards the caverns of the mighty Sabotin. The marked trail leads up a steep incline past the caverns towards the top of Sabotin. To the mountain hut on Sabotin, where there is a refreshment stand. We continue along the ridge to the top of Sabotin. After looking out on all sides and happy that we have conquered all three peaks, we continue our descent along the ridge to Sv. Valentino. Cross the stone TITO sign and continue down the winding stone path. After crossing the roundabout, we are already on the Italian side, at the new footbridge over the Soča River (the longest suspension footbridge in Slovenia). Over the footbridge, it's just the finish line, which will remain in our memories forever.

* More demanding sections are rocky (Sabotin), slippery (Sveta Gora cavern, Sabotin), footbridge crossing
