Destination

Turn-by-turn directions

From Zakojca ride to the Vrh Ravni Saddle and past the sunny Otavnik pasture to Prehod Pass. It is too difficult to reach the peak of Porezen on a bike, so hike to the Koča na Poreznu mountain hut and slightly higher to the panoramic peak of Porezen (1630 m).

From the Prehod Pass, return along the rough trail and forest road through the scattered hamlets of the Porezen Village to Podbrdo, which is the largest village in Baška grapa.
