The Kosovel learning trail

Sežana - Tomaj, 6221 Dutovlje
The trail runs along cart tracks and footpaths through karst pine woods and heavily overgrown karst landscape, passing the vineyards from which the famous Teran wine is produced. It is suitable for people of all ages and especially for school excursions. The entire trail takes two and a half hours at a moderate pace. The trail begins by the memorial tablet dedicated to poet Srečko Kosovel, in front of his house at Bazoviška Cesta 9. The trail runs along Partizanska street to the building of the Vinakras company, where it joins the forest learning trail. It continues along the footpath around the Tabor Hill (approximately 900 metres) and then descends to the path above the Ljubljana–Fernetiči motorway. From the hill you have a magnificent view of the lower Karst, with Vrhi and Nanos to the west and the Kaninski Podi mountain range and other nearby peaks to the northwest. Turn left on the road that runs parallel to the motorway fence. After seeing the beginning of the motorway tunnel beneath you, walk another 250 metres and then turn right onto a cart track. Following the cart track you will come to the macadamised road connecting Sežana (by the cemetery) with the Sežana–Vrhpolje asphalt road. Continue left, along the macadamised road to a crossroads. Walk down to the right towards Šmarje, under a railway bridge, and after approximately 150 metres turn right and downhill. You will see the village of Šmarje in front of you. Follow the marked trail leading through the village and then turn left and downhill. The trail soon begins to ascend and, when you reach a pipeline, after approximately 50 metres, turn sharp right and continue walking to the slope leading to the village of Križ. At the electricity box, turn onto the cart track a little bit away from the pipeline, and after 450 metres you will come to a forest road connecting Križ and the Sežana–Vrhovlje apshalt road. Turn left onto the cart track and after approximately 200 metres, in the immediate vicinity of the footpath (approximately 80 metres), there is an interesting and easily accessible cave called Pustov hram. To visit the cave, you will need a torch. The trail is marked. Walk another 100 metres to the right, then turn right again and you will reach the pipeline again. Cross the line and follow a slightly ascending path that leads to the Križ–Kreplje macadamised road. At the crossroads turn right and then, after 100 metres, turn left, taking the cart track towards Tomaj. After approximately 800 metres you will reach the terraced Tomaj vineyards, from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of Tomaj. When you reach the Sežana–Nova Gorica road, turn left and follow the road all the way to the Kosovel house. Trail lenght: 7 km Duration: 2.5 hours
