If you love biking on gravel roads through beech forests (autumn colors could be beautiful), the Javorniki ridge might be just what you’’re looking for.
For everyone else: the ascent is pretty steep, and there are no views. Try Slivnica.
At a Glance
- Somewhat steep gravel roads
- 1215 m
- Average time
- 4 h
- Elevation gain
- 840 m
- 33.8 km
- There are numerous parking opportunities in Rakov Škocjan. We usually park across the road from the hotel (see: starting coordinates).
- The area is crisscrossed with gravel- and logging roads, and we found no usable road signs. I used OpenCycleMap on ViewRanger to navigate (and even then, I got lost once).
- You could take the same path we did or explore on your own. Most roads will take you somewhere (although it might not be the place you’re looking for).
