The climb up Nanos is an incredible way to start the trail— this section was gorgeous. Some manageable road walking around Predjama and Cerknica, but interesting sights. The feet will definitely feel the road walks of this segment. The climb up and down Spilnik is very poorly maintained. Going south bound, the way down was actually impossible to see in the deep prickly weeds and briars. It is possible to avoid it by following a small meadow trail to the south side of the mountain. (We found on Gaia gps) The peak is lovely, but only if you can get there. Spend some time exploring Rakov Skocjan Park if you can, it’s amazing! We visited Krizna Cave as well and it was very cool. The trail directly uphill southbound from Sneznik castle is very overgrown. We were not able to find a way around, but picked our way through. Sneznik peak was a highlight, however. Absolutely incredible, with beautiful trail as well! A wonderful farewell to Slovenia.
