Kokoš from Lokev
Hiking in Slovenia

Kokoš is one of the summits in the range of hills that divides the Sežana Karst (more accurately Lokavsko polje) from the Gulf of Trieste. These hills are criss-crossed with hiking paths and cycling and horse-riding tracks and so are ideal for spring and autumn walks (you'll probably avoid going in summer because of the heat); the paths take you right from Lipica and practically as far as the caves Škocjanske jame. Kokoš and the nearby Vroče spring are obviously a popular destination with local mountaineers if I judge by the excellently arranged paths, and benches and tables placed beside them. There are two routes leading to Kokoš from Lokev, which enables you to make a fine round trip.
