The trail takes you around Olimje in the northern part of Kozjanski Park. Although the trail area is relatively small, it is extremely diverse and perfect for presenting the geological development and structure of Kozjanski Park. Visitors can take time to admire nature (the Olimje stream valley, Olimje's linden tree) and cultural heritage (Church of Mary's Assumption and Church of St. Andrej in Olimje, Olimje Monastery, Church of Virgin Mary in Pesek, Počivavšek's hayrack in Slake and archaeological site on the Rudnica). Visitors can enjoy the view on most of Kozjanski Park along the path. It is not demanding, every visitor with average physical abilities can take it. The footpath follows forest paths, cart tracks and some local roads with scarce traffic.
