Elevation profile of the route

A 53-km route for avid cycling enthusiasts whom also ascend to Mt Slivnica doesn't pose any problems. Apart from the stunning view from the witch mountain, you will also experience cycling along the beautiful Lake Cerknica and the picturesque Rakov Škocjan valley.

You start your way in the village of Dolenje Jezero and cycle through the village of Otok to the southern part of Lake Cerknica. Continue along the eastern part of the Cerknica plain until you get to the village of Grahovo, where you start some 10-km climb on Mount Slivnica. When you’re ready to continue your way and after you have admired the view from the top of witch mountain, head towards Cerknica and then follow the old road from Loško to Rakek. Here, take the main road to Unec and take a left turn towards Postojna. After two km, turn left for the Rakov Škocjan valley. In the forest coolness, cycle over Veliki and Mali naravni most (Big- and Small Natural Bridge) and take the first turn on the right until you get to the lookout over Lake Cerknica. From there, head north (downwards, towards Dolenja vas) and once in the village, cross the bridge to your right and continue to the starting point in Dolenje Jezero.

In the vicinity of this long and demanding trail, there are some tourist farms and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal and rest before you continue the trip.

A map of all the cycling trails in the mystical land of Lake Cerknica can be purchased at the Visitor center Lake Cerknica for € 2,00. Cycle through our very special piece of the world.
