You will have no chance to rest along this constantly ascending cycling tour to the village of Tolminske Ravne where all your efforts will be paid off with a magnificent view of the surrounding peaks.
Distance 23.7 km
The layout of this excellent panoramic cycling tour for well-prepared cyclists is routed past a spring, through the village of Zadlaz - Žabče, across the Zadlaščica River, past a small hydroelectric power plant and along the road to the village of Tolminske Ravne where a splendid view opens across the nearby meadows, to the surrounding peaks and all the way to the Razor Mountain pasture, which is approximately 90 minutes of walking away. The tour is very suitable for hot summer days because more than a half of it is routed through the forest and along shady sections where you can enjoy in peace without encountering a lot of traffic. Along the trail, you can visit Tehnika Krn, a partisan printing shop, which you can only access on foot. If you decide to visit it, you will be able to reach it along a narrow and steep trail in approximately 90 minutes. On the return from Tolminske Ravne, you will come across the Devil’s Bridge with a wonderful view of the gorges of the Tolminka River and the World War I Austro-Hungarian cemetery at Loče which is also well worth visiting.
Make sure to bring a sufficient supply of water and refreshments.
