The Koželj trail invites you over to Stahovica, but follow the road to taste the spring water and feel the freshness of the mountains by the Konjski potok stream (by the shooting range) and by the trough next to the road. Before the cable car to Velika planina, join the picturesque Koželj trail.

The Predaselj gorge is a delight with the flavour of wilderness and the green depths of the river. Take a deep breath and a restorative sip at the Mali izvirek, where mysterious spring snails testify to the long-lasting quality of the water.

The springs of Kamniška Bistrica and the Kraljevi izviri springs make us feel like royalty. While walking towards Kriška planina, you will find refreshment at three springs: above Gradišče, Korošica and Za vrati.
