Dobrava is a low and mountainous plateau that stretches across the Lower Bohinj Valley from Bohinjska Bistrica to the village of Polje. It rises south above the Sava Bohinjka, as a kind of foot of the Bohinj-Tolmin ridge. The track is prepared for both classic and skating techniques.

Turn-by-turn directions

The initial part of the slope in Bohinjska Bistrica, below the Telečnica hill, a popular sledding area, has been laid, but soon begins the steep climb towards Dobrava. The slope is interrupted several times by flatter parts. Once you reach the plateau of Dobrava, there are fewer steep sections, and after a few kilometres of running along Dobrava, the track descends more steeply towards the village of Polje, and from there back towards Bohinjska Bistrica. The descent back to Bohinjska Bistrica is also steep and requires some caution.
