A loop trail running through the western part of Brda, taking you on a trip across Brda's hills and forests. A natural stone bridge and natural pools can be found in the vicinity.
Črnica is one of ten Cherry Blossom Trails, which are named after old Brda cherry varieties. The trails are marked by brown signposts, yellow and white circles and yellow arrows on roads, rocks, trees and other flat surfaces.
The Črnica loop trail runs through the western part of Brda, passing through the villages of Šlovrenc, Slavče, Hlevnik, Hruševlje, Neblo and Fojana. Several climbs to Brda hills strewn with vineyards, orchards and olive groves afford us scenic views of the Brda landscape.
The trail starts and ends at the Dobrovo Castle, which is interesting from the historic, cultural and artistic point of view, since it houses a museum and a gallery. It then leads us past the Klet Brda winery, the largest producer and exporter of Slovenian wines. At Peternel, we can stop by the WWII memorial and also admire a two-arched stone bridge with st. John of Nepomuk. The natural attractions Krčnik, a natural stone bridge, and Kotline, natural pools, are located relatively near the trail.
The natural stone bridge Krčnik and natural pools Kotline are a must-see (2.5 km or a 35-min walk from the WWII memorial near Peternel).
This trail goes over a stream, which cannot be crossed during heavy rain periods as the water level gets too high.
