In the village, follow the right bank of the Predelica down to Koritnica. The cool flow of the river is a pure pleasure to ride in the summer heat. The Kluže Fortress is a place where the imagination finds its own way back in time to when these mighty buildings were built and inhabited. Above Kluže, Hermann's Fortress is also worth a visit, with a cycle path leading to it. From Kluže, descend to the place that crosses the Juliana Trail. Turn right off the road onto a pretty track and follow it across meadows, where you can enjoy views of the Trenta Valley, Svinjak and south towards Stol, to Bovec.

Turn-by-turn directions

The route starts in Log pod Mangartom at the bottom of the bridge over the Predelice. Go left down the dirt road running along the right bank of the Predelica to the confluence with the Koritnica and continue down along the Koritnica. Follow the beautiful unpaved path to the parking area where the path joins the Log - Bovec road. A little lower on our right is the branch for the Možnica Valley. Continue down the road past the Kluže Fortress. After about two kilometres, look out for the yellow Juliana Trail signpost on the right-hand side of the road. At this point the Juliana Trail crosses the road and continues along the track to the right of the road in the direction of Bovec. Take the cart road and keep going straight ahead. Follow the Juliana Trail signposts all the way to the centre of Bovec and finish the tour at the TIC.
