You can reach this remarkable scientific natural attraction via road through Tržič to the parking lot in Čadovlje.
The trail first leads to former drying shed for flax and fruit, locally caled paštaba. Down the trail along the right bank of the Tržiška Bistrica River, you come to the narrowest part of the gorge, above which rise the Kušpegarj Belfries, natural rock pyramids.
The locals built a hanging bridge across the wild river, and since the torrent destroyed during every major downpour, they named it the Devil's Bridge.
At the end of 19th century, a tunnel was built, through which you arrive at the geological pillar, which illustrates the rock structure of the Dovžanova soteska gorge (22). At point 13 of the Slovene Geological Trail, 81 eighty-one fossil forms were defined and described, of which twenty-one were new species. Here, numerous species of Brachiopoda were first found and described.
At the Exhibitional - Educational Centre in the Dolina village visitors can renew the information heard and seen along the path itself.
