Although the Juliana Trail is a modern acquisition of the Julian Alps Association, it still follows the ancient and centuries-old paths of the local people. They have guided the lives of the people of the Julian Alps for centuries, linking their fields and pastures and strengthening the ties between isolated homesteads. It is the cohesion of communities that has charted the life’s paths of generations. The Juliana Trail takes you through the Julian Alps as they were known in the past and as they are still lived today – a step away from everyday life and a little bit back in time, but always with an eye forward.
