Access to starting point:
From the road Kobarid - Tolmin in the village Idrsko to the right (in the reverse direction left) asphalt road branches off towards the village Livek. We go on this road and we follow it to the village Livek. And here we go right upwards in the direction of village Avsa. Ahead we drive to the beginning of the village Avsa, where we notice signs for Matajur right. We park at the appropriate place near a smaller crossroad (parking at or by the crossroad isn't allowed).
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go right on a worse road which soon changes into a cart track. Cart track then starts moderately ascending, and meanwhile bypasses larger number of decaying cottages. Cart track then turns into a footpath, which for a short time steeply ascends, and meanwhile crosses a grazing fence. The steepness then gradually decreases and the path leads us on a less and less vegetated slope. Path then brings us on the forest road, where right downwards the road branches off towards shepherd hut on the mountain pasture Idrska planina.
We continue straight to the upper part of the mountain pasture on the path which offers increasingly beautiful views. A little further, the road brings us to a crossroad, where we continue straight and immediately and then on the left side of the road, we notice cottage named Konjarska guta. To there we have only few steps of ascent.
From cottages on the mountain pasture we continue towards Matajur. After few ten strides path brings us to signposts by the path. Here we leave the forest road and we go right on a footpath in the direction of Matajur. Path ahead for a short time descends and after few minutes brings us again on the forest road, where we continue right. We further follow wide, partly with grass vegetated road. After few minutes of walk on the road, only a little after trough with water, which we notice by the road, footpath branches off right upwards on Matajur. We go on this path, which is ascending on a slightly vegetated slope. A little further, the path ascends on an interesting smooth rocky plates and then again crosses a forest road. Path ahead is still moderately ascending and in doing so bypasses smaller source, which in dry days dries up. And only a little ahead we come to a crossing, where the path from the village Svino joins.
We continue straight and the path which is moderately ascending then soon brings us to the next signposts, where we continue left upwards in the direction of Matajur. And only few steps ahead we come on the border ridge between Slovenia and Italy. Here the path turns right and it is then ascending on a wide gentle ridge. This path which leads us with increasingly beautiful views we follow to the top of Matajur, which we already see in front of us.
