Description

This gravel road begins off of Highway 110 about 2.8 miles (4.5 km) north of the southern tip of the island. From the highway, this trail climbs gently for 1.0 mile (1.6 km) to an overall height of 300 feet (100 m). Then you'll follow an old, and at times overgrown, hiking trail along a stone fence. This would be a fun and technical section as it winds beneath and between the low scrubby trees, but at times the trail becomes indistinguishable. There are occasional trail blazes and as a last resort the trail follows the stone fence. Eventually, the singletrack gives way into a stone doubletrack. Turn left at 2.2 miles (3.5 km) and follow this track into the outskirts of Kali. You'll merge with road 63100 for a short distance. When you get to Highway 110, turn left towards a cemetery.

The path makes an abrupt 90-degree right turn after the cemetery and just for fun, climbs very steeply (440 feet over 1.0 mile | 130 m over 1.6 km). The climb does pass through a real pine forest though offering some shade. A short descent then takes you to an intersection; turn left and then quickly left again. This begins a 3.2 mile (5 km) loop through an area filled with stone fence lined grazing fields before you end up back on Highway 110.

To reach the port in Preko where you can return to Zadar on the mainland, at the end of this road turn right (south) onto Highway 110 and continue about 0.25 miles (0.4 km) until the exit ramp. Take the exit ramp, cross under the highway and you have arrived at the ferry port.

You'll really want a GPX track or the MTB Project mobile app to help navigate as this road has a number of intersections and it would be easy to take a wrong turn.
