Slovenia

In wilderness above Borovnica

 

Spring time is full of rain and sunshine. And because there is mud in abundance as well, bikers like to stay on macadam roads at this time of the year. OK, a short muddy section is bearable

 

Starting point

Borovnica is a small town located at the SW fringe of Ljubljana swampland (Ljubljansko barje). It is 20 km away from Ljubljana, reachable either via Vrhnika or Podpec.

 

Trail description

The trail goes along the hills around Borovnica basin, where Pekel gorge reigns (Pekel = hell). From Borovnica you ascent to the western edge of the hills and then make a loop on the plateau, crossing a nice stream a couple of times. You also pass through two villages - Kozljek and Dobec. There is a nice view over the neighbor Mt. Slivnica from here. Finishing the loop, you head on the other side of Borovnica basin towards Rakitna. There is a short muddy section - passage, where orienting is also a bit more difficult. After that only nice terrain follows, including one rough DH and another smooth and fast DH on a singletrack called Kamikaze, at the end when descending back down to Borovnica basin. You can also visit a cave located in the area - called Krimska jama! But you should contact local tourist board in advance.

 

Other possibilities

A) You can shorten the trail if you leave out the loop - from no. 7 directly to no. 34.

 

B) If it is really wet, then it is wise to avoid the muddy passage - at no. 35 go straight on to main macadam road Cerknica - Rakitna, where turn left in direction of Rakitna. You get back to the trail at no. 41.

 

C) If you don't want to miss Rakitna, continue straight on at no. 42 on macadam road all the way to Rakitna, where you should turn left at the post office in order to get back to the trail at no. 49.

 

D) You can also avoid Kamikaze - at no. 54 continue on macadam. You get back to the trail at no. 55.
