    Outdoor learning with the help of different educational trails is always more interesting than classroom learning. Not only that students acquire different skills; by performing different tasks they also train their social skills and while solving actual examples they reach findings which they later on memorize with more ease. Information boards with more attractive content invite students to use all of their senses while solving different tasks, and encourage them to perform further researches. One of the main goals of our research was to determine whether it is reasonable to use an educational trail which we placed in the area under the hill Rožnik. We also wanted for the educational trail to become an additional learning tool for biology classes, mostly for the schools in vicinty. For this purpose we conducted interviews with 101 visitor, chosen at random. The interviewees stopped at the sample informations boards, read questions, information and interesting facts, while some of them even solved the tasks. The first part of questionnaires consisted of individual statements, which the interviewees rated on a scale from 1-5 using the Likert scale. The second part consists of open-ended questions. In our dissertation we focused on one information board and we analyzed it thoroughly. The results show that the interviewees agree with the implementation of the educational trail. However, there are still statistically important differences in opinion based on the gender and age groups of the interviewees. The interviewees agreed on the fact that the placement of the educational boards does not interfere with the environment. Based on the results, it is our belief that it would be reasonable to place a permanent educational trail as it would serve both teachers and students as a learning tool as well as for visitiors as an educational enrichment to their casual stroll.
