Dear reader:

On this page you will find the descriptions of the Stages R1 to R79 of the Red Trail.

Please click on the hyperlink of the relevant Stage – you will be diverted to the original page in the Via Alpina website in English. It will open in a new page. If you wish to look for the stage the other way round, just click on the box “reverse direction” on the relevant page.

You can enlarge the small pictures by clicking with the left side of the computer mouse: it will open in a new page. Click on the arrow in the upper bar pointing to the left to return to the page in the Paulinehikes website. You can check the source from which I took the picture by clicking on the hyperlinked text underneath the picture. An external page will open. This also serves a purpose as to copyright issues.

Additional information has been provided to the stages which I have already hiked or I am about to hike. This information can refer to a blog. It can also give explanations about a person, a place or an interesting event, mentioned in the text of the original page of the Via Alpina website in question.

Additional information on this Stage:

Leonardo Emilio Comici (* Trieste 1901 – † Sëlva in Val Gardena, 19 October 1940) was an Italian mountain climber and caver. He made numerous ascents in the Eastern Alps, particularly in the Dolomites (where he made over 200 first ascents during his career) and in the Julian Alps.

Vincenzo (“Enzo”) Cozzolino, (* Triëst 1948 – † Torre di Babele 1972), was one of the most famous Italian mountaineers. See also summitpost.org.

The region Illyria included the entire Adriatic coast from the former Yugoslavia and the actual Albania.

Stage B1 of the Yellow Trail also starts in Muggia.

Additional information on this Stage:

The illustrious Stud Farm Lipica offers nowadays a large variety of informative activities around the Lipizzaner horses.

The Cave of Vilenca reputedly has the longest tradition of speleological tourism in Europe. As early as 1633 the local landowner conferred the cave upon the local parish which managed it as a resource and opened it up to visitors. Until the middle of 19th century Vilenica had the reputation of being the largest most beautiful and most frequented cave in the central Karst. Long forlorn, passed over in favour of even larger caves in the region, Vilenica’s fortunes were revived in 1963 when the local Sežana Caving Club began taking an interest in it. The club’s members renovated its galleries in their leisure time and installed electric lighting. Today the cave is fully illuminated and some 450 metres of the more than 1.3km of galleries are open to the public. A guided tour lasts about an hour.

The name Lokev refers to a large pond where travellers drank and watered their donkeys. Lokev and similar names are derived from the Slovene common noun lokva, “pond, pool, watering hole”. The Italian name Corgnale is a corruption of the German word Kornhalle “grain warehouse”, the village granary.

The Military Museum in Lokev is situated in the defensive Tabor tower dating from 1485; it has been founded in 1995 on a private initiative. Only a small part of the large collection of special historical objects is displayed: most of them dating from the First and Second World Wars.

Pršut Although there are many types of air-dried ham in Slovenia, the Karst ham is the best known. Generally speaking, pršut is a dried pork ham. Its authentic taste comes from the specific Karstic climate. The fresh hams are cleaned and salted, and then left to dry for one or two years.

The bora (Slovene: burja, Italian and Venetian: bòra) is a northern to north-eastern katabatic wind (fall wind) in the Adriatic Sea. It is named after the Greek mythological figure of Boreas, the North Wind. The changeable bora can often be felt all over Montenegrin Littoral, Dalmatia, Istria, the Slovenian Littoral, Trieste, and the rest of the Adriatic east coast. It blows in gusts. The bora is most common during the winter.

Terrano or Teran (in Slovene) is primarily a Slovenian and also a Croatian and Italian wine variety, bearing the mark of recognized traditional denomination. It is a member of the Refosco family of grape varieties. Since 2006 it is a wine with a protected designation of origin (PDO) within European Union under the protected designation “Teran”. It is primarily grown on the Karst Plateau within the Slovene Littoral wine region (where it is called Kraški teran) and Italian Carso DOC (with two main varieties called Terrano del Carso and Carso Rosso (red Carso).
