JULIANA BIKE STAGES

The Juliana Bike Mountain Biking Loop is the younger sister of the Juliana Trail and part of the Slovenian Mountain Biking Route. Seven stages run counter-clockwise and together form a circle along the edges of the Julian Alps. With access stages from three directions, this trail shares similar panoramas and views of life in the Julian Alps to the footpaths along the Juliana Trail. The marked mountain biking loop takes you along local roads, biking trails, forest trails or unpaved roads and also demands respect for nature, plants, animals and other sensitive natural habitats, as well as the local people who live sustainably in the protected UNESCO – Man and Biosphere natural environment and Triglav National Park.
