The highest summit of the ridge that separates the valleys of Idrijca, Cerknica, and Hobovščica
Bevkov Vrh is the highest summit of the ridge that separates the valleys of the Idrijca, Cerknica, and Hobovščica. Many different trails lead to Bevkov Vrh. One of them leads from the village of Straža and then along the Vovkova Grapa ravine to the hydrologic phenomenon called Zaganjalščica. This interesting piece of natural hydrological heritage consists of the Zaganjalka spring under the village of Cerkljanski Vrh in the Volkova Grapa ravine near the Zakrog farm. This is an interesting karstic phenomenon, characteristically marked by changes in water flow. At regular flow it takes seven minutes before the water almost disappears and then bursts out of the depths again. All other such springs in Slovene terminology are named after the Zaganjalka in the Cerkno region. Follow the path in the direction of the Na Ravan farm, where you can buy excellent home-made cheese. At the farm you can also taste cheese and other dairy products, for which they have already received numerous awards. At this point, there is still about half an hour hike to the summit where there is a chapel and where you can get a stamp. Along the way, a beautiful view of Mt. Porezen and Cerkno opens up.
Return to the crossroads (near the Na Ravan farm) and turn right towards the Hobovše farm. You will soon reach a turnoff. Turn left here and follow the path to the Stotnikar farm and then to the Mator farm and still further on to the Kacin farm. Depart from the main road here and turn left. The path leads down the slope. You will soon join walking trail no. 5, which leads back to the town of Cerkno.
