Start in the sports park
The route starts at Domžale Sports Park , where there is a plenty of parking space. Below the road which crosses the Kamniška Bistrica River, take the Green Axis – a segregated facility for cyclists and pedestrians along the Kamniška Bistrica. Turn northwards. The path is laid down on the left and right banks of the river , but not along the entire course of the river. Anyways, it is hard to get lost on this path, but it is easy to get off the described route.
Walk against the water current along a sandy, well maintained path until the first bridge . On the other side is Šumberk Hill – it is to Domžale what Tivoli Park is to Ljubljana – and the confluence of the Rača and the Kamniška Bistrica rivers . You will see an outdoor gym on your left . Markings of the distance from the bridge near the Sports Park are put along the path. In general, there are plenty of spots along the path where you can have a rest . You will soon come to a linden tree alley, which was planted in 1980 to commemorate the death of Yugoslav leader Josip Broz - Tito. The next concrete bridge is also reserved only for pedestrians and cyclists . It is nicely supplemented with two entry roundabouts . Continue your walk along the tree alley. Educational boards with topics related to the river are set up along the path. The third bridge is a traffic bridge , which is why pedestrian underpasses were made on both sides . The fourth bridge is reserved for pedestrians and cyclists. Cross it to get to the left bank of the Kamniška Bistrica , .
On the left bank
A little bit ahead is a board presenting the entire course of the Kamniška Bistrica. On the right, the bell tower of the modern Church of St. Joseph rises above the roofs. Tree alleys follow the path , while the banks of the developed river channel are slowly being overgrown . You will soon get to another outdoor gym and tennis courts . A lots of barrages have been constructed on the river to prevent it from flooding in time of high waters . The next bridge is an industrial bridge with railway tracks . On the right is the Količevo karton cardboard factory . The remainder of the route is somewhat away from the river, while it still follows its course.
From the bridge in Radomlje , there is only a couple of tens of metres to the roundabout with millstones , which speak of the village's milling tradition. In Pri Šporn Inn you can quench your thirst on the outdoor terrace . Standing on the other side of the road is the only operable mill in Radomlje – Kralj Mill . The milling machines are electricity-powered, so the mill is no longer dependent on water. Continue the hike along the left bank. In the distance, you can see the church bell tower in the village of Homec, rising above the tree tops . Again cross the Kamniška Bistrica at the next bridge . On the eastern side of Homec Hill you will come to the dam which supplies the Homska Mlinščica Stream . A new bridge stands a little bit ahead, from where it takes only a five-minute walk to get to Volčji Potok Arboretum.
Onto Homec Hill
Circle Homec Hill and start climbing towards the top past the crucifix along a steep hardened path . Pilgrims' trails are usually steep, which is good for penance. At the stone chapel turn towards the Church of the Nativity of Mary , from where once there was a beautiful view, while only forest can be seen today . Turn around and descend past the Pirnat Villa , designed by Jože Plečnik, to the plateau with the chapel . First go on the right side past the chapel and through the forest to the house . Go down the stairs and descend to the road . Return across the Homška Mlinščica Stream to the path going along the Kamniška Bistrica. This concludes the Homec Circle .
Šumberk at the end
Return along the same path to the first bridge you crossed at the beginning of the hike . An info board about the Šumberk forest educational path is on the right. Cross the river, go past the monument and you will get to Pot pod hribom Street. The start of the forest educational path , a sort of an open-air classroom, is in front of the houses. A little red fox will take you to the trip and show you various species of trees, plants and animals, and you can also pick fruit and nuts and collect leaves. The circular educational path has fourteen educational points and crosses paths with a fitness trail. At point 5, there is an observation point with a view of the Green Axis . Point 8 takes you to the "Dwarf's Land" . If you look around carefully, you will return richer with a new and surprising experience. When you return from the forest, take the same path to return to the starting point.
