Slivnica (on a Bike)

Biking in Slovenia » Notranjska » Slivnica (on a Bike)

If you’d like to enjoy the view of Lake Cerknica and don’t feel like hiking to Slivnica, use the gravel road to bike there. Be careful on summer weekends – some people think that “spending a day in nature” means “drive to the mountain hut and have a beer,” and many of them haven’t yet mastered the art of driving on a gravel road.

  • Park at the usual place
  • Leaving the parking lot, turn left and keep going mostly straight or slightly right.
  • Following the signs for Dom na Slivnici (Slivnica mountain hut), stay on the broadest gravel road until you get to the top.

Back to Cerknica

  • You could take the same road, but that’s boring.
  • Several singletracks and dirt trails are going down Slivnica’s western slopes. Check Opencyclemap for details.
  • We took an alternate road circling Slivnica – keep on the rightmost gravel road going down, following signs for Grahovo and later Velika Krpanova Pot (also: VKP).
