Summits near the Cerkno region: Blegoš (1,564 m)

The highest summit of the Škofja Loka hills


Blegoš, with its 1,562 m is the highest summit of the Škofja Loka hills (Slov. Škofjeloško hribovje), and is besides Ratitovec and Porezen one of the “three great” pre-alpine summits. It is situated between the valleys of the Selška Sora and Poljanska Sora rivers. The grassy summit offers a unique view in nice weather: besides the surrounding summits you will see the entire ridge of the lower Bohinj mountains, Golaki, Kojca, the highest peaks around Triglav, Porezen, Ratitovec, Koprivnik, the entire Karavanks, and the Kamnik Alps. On days when the air is very clear you can see all the way to Mt. Snežnik in the south. No wonder that there’s a plentitude of marked trails leading to such an important summit, which offers a wide spectrum of hiking trips – from a short half an hour walk to short trips from Črni Kal, ridge hikes from Stari Vrh above Škofja Loka or Črni Vrh above Cerkno, to the very challenging ascents from the valleys of the Poljanščica or Selščica streams.
