Zeleni vir and Vražji prolaz are located in the canyon, at the foot of Skrad. They were proclaimed geomorphologic reserve in 1962. They spread over an area of about 200 hectares.
Arrival is very accessible with well-kept hiking trails, a walk along the Curak stream, or the road.
The Green Stream (Zeleni vir) is a source at the bottom of a shallow cave whose entrance is surrounded by vertical rocks falling down a waterfall. The green light has been named after the greenish color of water that is formed in the cave. All along the walking paths, surrounded by beautiful untouched nature, are accompanied by a light gullet of water.
The Devil's Passage (Vražji prolaz) is a canyon, 800 meters long. Between the high rocks, the stream of Jasle flows through it, and with its action it forms stones and leaves enchanting scenes. Through the Devil's Passage, there are narrow paths, stairs and junctions with streams.
