Cycling tour under the Storžič No. 10a

The cycling routes under the Storžič Mountain are a joint project carried out by the municipalities of Kranj, Naklo, Tržič, Preddvor and Šenčur, under which the first four cycling trails beneath the Storžič were marked in 2014. The starting point for all routes that are 20 to 30 kilometres long is the outdoor pool in Kranj, but you can join them everywhere. They are suitable for mountain bikes, trekking bikes or for road bikes.

 

The route 10a is a shorter version of the route No. 10.

 

After you cycle downhill from Trstenik, turn right to Čadovlje. If you are hungry or thirsty, or just like that, you can visit the Markuta holiday farm. They will be happy to offer you apple juice and freshly baked bread with jam made from their own fruit. Then continue through the village of Hraše and past Tatinec to Bobovek. Here, when digging for clay, the skeleton of a mammoth was found and then the ponds emerged. They interesting also because of the marsh plants and animals that found their habitat here. Next stop is the Brdo estate.

If you have enough time, the park Brdo with its wealth of flora and fauna and the castle with its rich history are worth seeing. On your way back you can cycle through the villages Ilovka and Rupa. Then you can see this part of the Kokra River canyon and soon you are back at the starting point, on the Partizanska Street at the entrance to the stadium.
