Ribnica - Details

Description
A short walk along the river Ribnica through a nice gorge. You start the track on a gravel road, later on it becomes a forest path. After about 40 minutes you reach the first waterfall, the second waterfall is reached less than 5 minutes after the first.

How to get there
Coming from Ribčev Laz at Lake Bohinj, drive through Stara Fužina to Srednja vas v Bohinju. We use to park aside the road about 200 meters before reaching the first houses of Srednja vas because it is hard to park in the center of the village. The GPS track also starts there.​

During the walk
If you have parked at the same spot, walk into the village. When the main road turns right, walk straight ahead. You will soon see the riverbed of the Ribnica at your left. Follow the riverbed, pass an inn called Pri Hrvatu on your right and exit the village to the north.
You walk along a gravel road in the gorge with the Ribnica at your left. You will pass two old dams in the riverbed. At the end of this road there is a small pumping station at your right and a walking path continues straight ahead.
You cross a footbridge made of railroad ties, directly after the footbridge turn right at the y junction, so not left to the riverbed. Shortly after you will cross a dry riverbed of a tributary. There are some yellow-white dots on trees marking the path.
fter that it is about five minutes walk along a nice footpath through woods to the first waterfall. The pool can be easily reached. Within five minutes walk from the first waterfall, you reach the second waterfall where the footpath ends.
