Oblakov Vrh (Cloudy Peak) is a saddle1 between Kanomlja and Hotenja valleys with a beautiful view of the Idrija Fault (both valleys resulted from that fault). We’ll bike to Oblakov Vrh from Dolenja Trebuša and enjoy a panoramic view of the Julian Alps on the way back.

- Cross the stream (Hotenja), then turn left and follow signs for Oblakov Vrh. It will take you a bit more than an hour to get there.
- On the way back, take a narrower, steeply ascending asphalt road on the first left hairpin.
- When you get to a fork, stop and enjoy the view. If you don’t have a mountain bike, turn around and use the main road to return to Dolenja Trebuša (the descent ahead of us is somewhat brutal).
- Still with me? Take the left road.
- The asphalt road will eventually turn into a well-maintained gravel road, cross another meadow, and start descending.
- Take a sharp left onto a narrower half-forgotten washed-out gravel road (I found a wooden sign for Trebuša).
- When you reach the valley, turn right and keep going straight until you return to Dolenja Trebuša.
