The trail starts at the unmistakable parking lot beneath the outdoor museum. You should certainly set aside more time to visit the museum, however, due to the several-kilometre-long trail in front of you, you should first head along the restored trenches and caverns to the first peak called Na gradu. Here, you can finally enjoy in magnificent views of the Julian Alps to the north and to the Adriatic Sea to the south which will follow you along the entire ridge.
From the first peak, you descend along the trenches back to the ruins of the buildings of the former Yugoslav army and continue to the peak called Trinški vrh. Directions from here are simple: Continue following the trail in the ridge area, up-and-down the mounds, past the Zanuso Bivouac to Mt. Nagnoj and to the end of the trail where you arrive to the road taking you to the main road which you have to cross and continue along the supply road all the way to the large transmitter on the top of the highest peak called Kuk.
To avoid returning entirely along the same trail, you should return along the road on the Italian side of the mountain. This route is especially pleasant in sunny evenings during the colourful autumn or cold winter months. Follow the road to the last descent towards the Solarji Mountain pass. and ascend back to the ridge which you follow back to the parking lot.
