Matuckarjeva pot trail is an easy flatland route mostly suitable for a family cycling trip. In parts it can also be walked on foot. It's 12 km long and takes you across the entire Zadlog plain, past the homestead, pastures and various markings.

A visit of this trail can be a nice outdoor trip where the visitors take a breath of fresh air, listen to the birds' singing and have a chat with the locals. A slow trip around this cycling route will take you about an hour and a half.

The main point of interest at this trail is man and his life on the karstic ground, an area with diverse climate and vibrant history. How that affected the way of life in the past and the life today, how people were able to adapt and what is their relationship toward the natural resources. All of this is presented through some elements of natural and cultural heritage. Visitors will get to know how the geological characteristics have shaped a typical karstic countryside, some natural resources, architecture typical for Zadlog, fragments of way of life of the people from Zadlog in the past and nowadays and get to know the life and work of the compatriot dr. Frančišek Lampe.

In the centre of Črni Vrh, take the turn for Zadlog. After about 400 m you get to the tourist farm Pr Mark, which is the starting point of the tour. The signs and boards provide a more detailed presentation of the route. Continue toward the destination. After a short climb up the slope the Zadlog plateau opens before the visitor's eyes.

The direction posts are equipped with QR codes - by scanning them you can access the webpage contents. They take you past Lanena jama (the Flaxen cave), Ivajnškova lipa (Ivajnšek's linden tree), Ivajnškova lokva (Ivajnšek's pool), Tominc homestead with an interesting well, and all the way to the monument to the well-known Zadlog compatriot dr. Frančišek Lampe.

From here you are directed towards Štefkove rupe – a typical karstic feature. Then the route takes you to some hamlets around Zadlog and back towards the starting point, ending in the quarry where you can clearly see the boundary of two tectonic plates.

Above the Zadlog plains rises Špičasti vrh (1128 m) which, if the weather permits, offers fascinating views towards the sea, the Alps and the Ljubljana basin.

In the WWI museum you can see the exhibition named »Da ne bi pozabili« (»Lest we forget«), which presents the history of the village during the war.
