“A multi-use, hike and bike route; mapped as an awesome shuttle ride.”
— Tony Karzen
One of many trail combinations within the area, this route is not particularly demanding but it does have sections that can be technical, especially if ridden aggressively.
One of the more popular trail descent combinations due to its position running from the top of the mountain down to the easily accessible base area (van shuttles run from this area and the finish is also close to the bus line that runs up to the top). It is also in close vicinity to the main road as well as a couple of the trails that get used for ascents.
Need to Know
Mountain huts at the top have good food. You should ride it heads up on a first run as occasional clearing of nearby forest areas can leave the occasional object in the path of the trail (usually not an issue, but it can happen).
One of many multi-use trail combinations from the top of Sljeme (Medvednica) to the base zone in the neighborhood of Gračani. This ride connects the generally moderate trails Trail 52
and Trail 57
with a couple of steeper, more technical sections. RiderS must be aware of the multi-use status as hikers can be encountered on the trail from time to time (mostly on weekends). Overall, a nice singletrack route that gets regular use by local riders.
History & Background
As indicated in the description, this is a dual-use trail that was traditionally an 'alternate' ascent to some of the other hiking paths which are more popular, but due to its moderate usage by hikers, riders have been running it with more and more frequency.
