Every year in August, there is a timber raftsmen festival by the Savinja river in Ljubno called Flosarski Bal. In this place, we can refresh ourselves with spring water before crossing the Savinja river using a suspension footbridge.

Under the ski jumping hills, the road invites us towards the right through the hamlet of Savina to the Trbiški graben brook and the drinking water trough. Along the stream, we descend to the Savinja and follow the road leading up the hill past some farms.

We look back to the valley and its outskirts of Komen and Tirske peči mountains and then turn our eyes towards rounded pastures with flocks of sheep and ragged Alpine peaks. After crossing the Rogačnik brook, we continue past the farms in Krnica and the Lučnica stream to the renowned Mountaineering Village of Luče.
