Turn-by-turn directions

In Kanal, turn to the narrow street heading north from the square. Follow the marks for Kal nad Kanalom. Ride 5 km to Avče. At the end of Avče, turn from the main road to the right towards Doblar and descend for a kilometre along a narrow asphalt road downwards. When exiting the narrow area, pay attention to the MTB signs that point you to the narrow asphalt road to the right and upwards. Continue along it and there you shall have no problems orientating. The road takes you along the left bank of the Soča River for about 100 metres in altitude below you. The terrain comprises concrete on steep parts as well as asphalt, gravel and unpaved road. After 4 km, above Babja jama, the cart road descends to a dark ravine and on the other side rises to a more flat terrain. In this part, the cart road has stones and gravel, therefore, you need to walk by the bike for 200 metres. After a less than a kilometre, at Log village, you can drive along asphalt road to Drobočnik, turn right towards Most na Soči and you will reach the goal in a few minutes. There you can continue along the Juliana Bike route.
