St. Jošt nad Kranjem for cyclists

One could say that there is hardly a cyclist in Kranj who has not already tried the route to Jošt. It is a obligatory tour for recreational athletes, downhill fans, professional cyclists and also constitutes a part of the training at many sports clubs.

Take your car from the Stražišče pri Kranju to the street Pot na Jošta at the foot of the hill, where you can also park. The initially steep climb later becomes a bit more level, as you cycle through the villages of Pševo and Javornik. There you turn right at the Pr’Končovc farm and get on a steep slope. There will be almost no chance to rest on the way from Javornik to the saddle. After an easier stretch of road, when you already see the top of the hill, you need just a bit more effort and there you are already. At the top, treat yourself to a refreshing drink and good food at the excellent Dom na Joštu restaurant. There’s a beautiful view of the mountains and valleys of the Gorenjska region, the Karawanks, the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and of course Kranj.

The MTB Kranj mountain bike club has set up a polygon on the hill of St. Jost, called Borovničke, that has three programs, the Trilči Line, the School Route and the Argentina Line. Only club members are allowed to cycle on them. Further information:
