Trip: Kobarid – Sedlo – Mountain pasture Božca – Kobarid

An attractive and difficult trek on the mighty Stol.

Length: 52km
Altitude difference: cca. 1100 m
Inclination: hilly
Base: tarmac, forest road, gravel
Category:: for mountain bikes

.

From Kobarid you take the road to Italy. In Staro Selo you take a right turn for Breginj. You stay on this road until the village Sedlo where you take a right turn. This is followed by 12 kilometres of difficult trek which takes you past the relay station to the mountain pasture Božca. This is the most difficult part of the trip.

You can take several routes of descent:

A) You descend down the gravel forest road to Učja border pass. From there you follow the road to Žaga. In Žaga you turn right towards Kobarid

B) Attractive route down the ridge

You take the route for bivouac Hlek at the crossroads (1370m) on Božca. You pass the wood and take a bad gravel road which runs just below the ridge. The path descends slowly. You pass a mountain spring and the bivouac to arrive at the hunting lodge (1225m) under the peak Na vrhu. You proceed to the area with cattle fences. You pass the gates and proceed on the track until you reach a meadow (1125m) where the road ends. The rest of this path is not well marked. You proceed to peak Starijski vrh (1147m). Here you go into the woods and the path starts to descent quickly. Next 100m of altitude should be done on foot. Later you start riding again (S5 and S6 difficulties) and descend to a small mountain pasture (905m) with a barn. You take a sharp left at the barn and ride down the meadow on an old unmarked dirt track. You follow the road (S5) until you reach a flat grassy clearance (895m). You take a right here and follow the dirt track. The track becomes better visible and rocky (S5 and S6). You pass several shepherds cottages to arrive on the mountain pasture pod Babo (780m). Here you take a left to a better track (S3 – S4) and descend down to the forest road Trnovo – Hlevišče (700m). You take the forest road and it leads you to the main road Kobarid – Bovec (340m). You take a right turn for Kobarid.

B1) Descent to village Potoki

You can descend to village Potoki from bivouac Hlek. The path is marked. The first part of the path takes you over old unused meadows. About half way to Potoki you arrive on a forest road, which takes you to the village. This path is not too interesting for cycling.

B2) Descent to village Staro Selo

You travel to the hunting lodge and pass it. You travel towards Starijski vrh and take the old Italian military road. The road is not maintained regularly so rocks and fallen trees make the journey more difficult. The military road brings you to Staro Selo from where you take the main road to Kobarid. This path is not too interesting for cycling due to the bad road and a quick descent.

B3) Descent from mountain pasture pod Babo directly to Kobarid

On the mountain pasture pod Babo you travel to a weekend cottage, which lies at the end of the meadow. There is an old Italian military road which begins there and takes you directly to Kobarid town center. This path is a bit more difficult and interesting to cyclers.

C) You can descend down on the same road you took to the top. The whole trip would be cca 35km if you take this path.


Trip: Breginj – Podbela – Mija

The ascent to Mija, which dominates the Nadiža, is very interesting due to vistas and the fact that the road is mostly in tree shade.

Length: 16.9km
Altitude difference: cca. 330 m
Inclination: hilly
Base: tarmac, forest road, gravel

From Breginj you take the main road to Borjana. In Borjana you take a sharp right at the church in direction of Podbela. You arrive in Podbela and pass the village. You cross the bridge over Nadiža and follow the river to the Napoleons bridge. About 100m past the bridge you take a left on a gravel road. The next two kilometres are a slow ascent. When you ascent the second ridge you arrive to Zgornja Mija mountain pasture (800m). You proceed on a forest road until you reach a sharp left turn (820m). There is a track on the right which is a dead end. You continue on the track and reach the next crossroads (840m).

A) You take a left at the crossroads and after a kilometre you reach the hunting lodge on mountain pasture Spodnja Mija, which is our final destination.

B) You take the right fork. You ride a narrow and badly maintained forest road to a sharp right turn. There is a clearing with a hunting stance there. About 300m on you take a sharp right at a crossroads and follow the track until it ends. This is our final destination (960m).

You can make the trip longer if you take a detour over the village Logje.
