Walking path Drvošec in the making
Let us make the colourful and weather-varied days we’ve been having, even better with some good news. We have started building information points, sculptures and sitting benches on the walking path Drvošec. There are also nozzles fastened for LIFE’s bird observatory Nad Levišči.
Cerknica Lake looks more like a field these days because the water has dried up. Now you can enjoy watching it while sitting on new wooden benches along the walking path Drvošec. As already said, the Drvošec walking path runs from the sinkhole Rešeto to the bridge in Vrata before the village of Otok. It runs mostly through the woods where you ascend at Ribiška koča. Many wooden benches are located at the view point called Ribiški kot. Another set of benches is set in a the circle on the Kleni vrh slope that offers you some breath-taking views on Cerknica Lake and the mountain Slivnica above it.
The bird »traffic« is now at the peak. Their migration lasts until the end of December, when the ducks, wild geese and cranes take a rest at our lake.
There will be many information points for even better educational and entertaining walk along the path. Among the most interesting points is definitely the so called “food chain” with pillars in placed in the circle where it’s possible to observe through the holes who is feeding on who in the nature.
There are some interesting sculptures dedicated to the typical animals of this area – a sculpture of lynx, which is a climber for children at the same time, a tree-like pillar dedicated to the ural owl and woodpecker, the wolf’s silhouette or a»bear’s den« in which you will be able to have a peek without a fear of a furious bear. There is a bear’s silhoutte placed next to the “den”.
There will be many orientational pillars along the path, that will guide you in the right direction so you won’t get lost. On the path you will also see many other sculptures that were made by nature. Each person’s imagination will be the one that is going to decide what are they seeing in those sculptures.
