From Pokljuka in the valleys of Radovna, Krma, Vrata and upstream the Sava River to Kranjska Gora
Distance 67.7 km
Descend from the embrace of the mighty spruce forests of the Pokljuka to the valleys of Radovna and Krma. Stop and listen to the stories from the past at the Pocar Homestead and at the Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana, which will take you to the world of the mountains.
The trail is marked with blue signposts and markers indicating a mountain biking loop. We recommend using the Triglav Map, issued by Planinska Zveza Slovenije (Alpine Association of Slovenia).
Pokljuka is full of forest paths; therefore, it is recommended to carefully follow the Slovenian Mountain Biking Trail signs.
Warning: On the Planina Klek–Stresena dolina–Radovna section, cycling is prohibited from 1 March to 1 July. Cycling in this period can negatively impact the reproductive cycle of the western capercaillie and black grouse. Please consider this restriction.
