A trip from Idrija to Gore is definitely most beautiful if done on foot. Start in Idrija, namely, at the police station. Past Kumer follow the markings of Slovenska planinska pot to rise to Mala ravan. The path is carved into the magnificently colourful conglomerate rocks. From Mala ravan you can continue upward along the path to Velika ravan and to Gore, or you can turn toward Staje.

If you choose this second option you will reach the main road under Kovačev Rovt. The main road goes along the former transport road from Idrija to Vrhnika. For centuries this was the transport route for the mercury obtained in Idrija all the way to the 'port' on the Ljubljanica. In the opposite direction they brought wheat and other essentials for the mining town. From Kovačev Rovt opens a unique view on the Idrija basin and the town Idrija. From Kovačev Rovt you can also view the settlement of the surrounding narrow ravines. This view is especially glorious at night.

From Kovačev Rovt continue uphill to 'Albinca' and then along the path through excellent mushroom picking terrains from tuff rock (volcanic ash) to the church of St. Mary Magdalene at Gore. The village Gore boasts half a millennium of history. The previously smaller church was later painted with frescoes. After seeing Gore continue your way along the road to Rebro where you come back to the »transport road« which takes you along the steep winding road back down to Idrija.
