There are 10.045 km of mountain trails in Slovenia and they are maintained by 196 alpine clubs. The trails are built and marked by volunteer trailblazers – this year as many as 763 are registered. In addition to routine checks, marking and cleaning the trails, they have to occasionally deal with various natural disasters. While one of the most notorious was the ice storm in February 2014, (flash) floods are also quite common and sometimes require technically more demanding actions. 

This website was created in response to the above-mentioned ice storm damage. During trail restoration process following the natural disaster, it turned into a web portal which informs mountain hikers about the current state of mountain trails and the closed (sections of) trails.

Mountain trails are listed in the Mountain Trail Register, which is managed by a special commission of the AAS. On the basis of the mountain trail cadastre we have also set up an interface to show the trails in Geopedia, which can serve as an aid when you are preparing for a tour.

Maps of Alpine Association of Slovenia (PZS – Planinska zveza Slovenije) in the map scale 1 : 25.000 and 1 : 50.000 are one of the most useful navigation tools for visitors of Slovenian mountains. Marked trails, mountain huts, paths, natural and cultural points of interest, tourist infrastructure and everything else important for activities in the nature are represented here in detail. Field data are continuously updated by volunteers of Slovenian alpine clubs. Alpine Association of Slovenia unites 287 of them, counting over 55 000 members.

PZS maps can be obtained in 16 offline packages offered in Locus Store. Maps, which may be downloaded on your smart phone, cover northern part of the country and more will be coming in near future: Bohinj East and West, Jalovec in Mangart North and South, Kamniško Savinjske Alpe (Steiner Alpen), Karavanke East and West, Krnsko pogorje East and West, Stol East and West, Triglav East&West, Triglav National Park East&West. 

An interesting Slovenian feature are also long-distance mountain trails. The most well-known among Slovenian mountain hikers is the Slovenian Mountain Trailestablished by Ivan Šumljak on 1 August 1953. It runs from Maribor to Ankaran and traverses the entire Slovenian part of the Alps, as well as a good part of the sub-alpine world.

 

FOR SAFER MOVEMENT IN THE MOUNTAINS

Before a hiking tour (not just a day or two before, but several days earlier), you should monitor the weather forecast for the mountains which you plan to visit, and consider all warnings and information about the situation in the mountains. Choose routes which are suited to your physical and mental fitness, and during the tour adjust the pace to the least experienced participant. Bring appropriate mountaineering equipment and also learn how to use it before the tour. Check which mountain huts are open on the list of huts, shelters and bivouacs, and do not use those trails which have been closed by the alpine club managing them. Start your hiking tour early enough and share your route and plans with your family or friends.

For hikers who lack experience and skill to move on mountainous terrain it is recommended that they become members of an alpine club and under the guidance of a mountain guide visit mountains in organized groups. Feel free to consult AAS mountain guides, ask them for advice, or share with them your experience of hiking in the mountains. An AAS guide will be also able to advise you which guided hike to choose among the hikes offered by the alpine club.
