Access to starting point:
We leave Primorska highway at exit Divača, and then at the roundabout we go to the exit in the direction of Lipica and Divača. After the industrial zone Risnik we go left in the direction of Sežana, Lipica, Divača and cave Vilenica (straight - old road towards Ljubljana and Postojna), and then at the next roundabout we drive in the direction of Lokev and Lipica. Further, we drive on the road Lokavska cesta, and soon after a smaller right turn we on the left notice a smaller parking lot and next to it, the information sign of karst sinkhole Risnik. Because we are not allowed to turn left here, on the main road, we drive a little further, then at the side road we turn around and we return to the mentioned parking lot.
Path description:
Signs for karstology natural learning trail point us towards the east, on a footpath which continues above the walls of karst sinkhole. The path leads us a little left from the precipice, and occasionally it gets closer to it and from the edge of the precipice a nice view opens up on karst sinkhole Risnik. A gently sloping path, which isn't marked, except at the crossings where it is marked with tourist signs, after few minutes brings us on the southeastern part of karst sinkhole, from where from the vantage point there is a nice view towards the karst sinkhole, and the view reaches all the way to the Alps. After the learning sign "travnik", the path passes into a lane of bushes and forest, and at the crossings we follow the signs of a learning trail. Even a little further, we get to the next learning information board rock shelter Spodmol Triglavca, and few minutes further we reach a bad forest road which we follow to the right. Further, the road turns right and gets closer to a railway track, and at the next learning board we leave it and we go right on a forest path (if we continue straight we can get to cave Divaška jama). We continue through the forest, and at the next sign, the path splits. We continue straight, or we can go left and we make turn to the valley Kraški Radvanj (if we decide for extension, we return to a crossing). Next follows some more of walking through the forest and then the path starts considerably ascending (until now there were some shorter light descents). Next follows few more crossings, where we follow the signs, and then on a footpath which runs right from the main road, we get to the beginning or the end of the circular path.
