Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Črni Kal. From Črni Kal we continue driving on the old road towards the coast, and we are driving there only to the next little bigger crossroad, where we turn left in the direction of border crossing Sočerga. On the mentioned road, we drive past the settlement Kubed to the village Gračišče, where at the crossroad we turn left in the direction of Rakitovec, Movraž and Smokvica. From Gračišče we drive to the village Movraž, and there we turn right in the direction of Dvori. Before the village Dvori we come to the next crossroad, where we continue sharply right (left Dvori), and on the road we drive few more 100 meters to mountain signposts, which we see by the road. We park on an appropriate place by the mountain signposts.
Path description:
From the starting point, we go on a marked footpath in the direction of natural bridge (Naravni most) and Sveti Kvirik. The path already after few steps brings us to an unmarked crossing, where it split on the old left and new right path.
A walk on the old otherwise more interesting path which leads past the natural bridge, because of preserving of rare birds species is not recommended, therefore we continue on the right, newly made mountain path. The path ahead is gently to moderately ascending, and in doing so it crosses bushy slopes towards the right. A little higher we leave a wide path, because blazes point us sharply to the left on at first still easy to follow footpath which starts ascending steeper. The footpath soon vanishes among high grass and bushes, and we continue on a slope straight upwards, where we quickly reach the path which leads from Sveti Kvirik towards the rock shelters of Velega badina.
Here, where from the left joins also the old more interesting path, we go right and we continue the ascent on a well-beaten path which continues by the edge of a partly precipitous ridge. The path ahead crosses a short lane of a forest and then it again passes on unvegetated slopes, from which beautiful views opening up. The path ahead quickly returns on the ridge, which with few ascents and shorter descends we follow to the spot, where 50 meters long path branches off to the left, which leads to the nearby Bunker (a smaller natural window in which is an inscription book). Here we continue straight and after a short ascent, we get to RTV transmitter above Sočerga.
We bypass the transmitter on the right side, and we follow the footpath which starts gently descending to the nearby church of St. Kvirik.
On the way: Bunker (390m)
Trip can be extended to: Orlovo gnezdo (Veli Badin)
