Description of MTB route:
The starting point of the mountain bike route is Livno city. From the square named Trg domovinskog rata proceed to the north. At the end of the square keep the left street and on the second crossroad turn right and proceed on the paved road. After few hundred meters the paved road turns into the carriageway. The gradually climb follows until you reach the south plateau below the Cincar mountain. This is well known pasture area of Cincar mountain. On the crossroad proceed straight. On the second crossroad proceed straight for the vantage point with the nice view to the field Glamočko Polje or turn right to ride directly to Velika Drežnica & Kruzi hut. The hut is situated few hundred meters from the next labeled crossroad. The hut is opened during weekends. From the crossroad near the hut proceed on the carriageway to the west side of Cincar mountain. Near the ruined hut starts the path to the peak of Cincar mountain. The path is not labeled. Due to hazardous area do not ride or hike off the trail. You can leave the bike in the forest and hike to the peak. It takes around 90 minutes to the peak, just follow the ridge to the east course. The bike trail proceeds on the carriageway to the north side of Cincar mountain. Just keep right on all crossroads and you will reach Velika Drežnica plateau on the north side of Cincar mountain. From Velika Drežnica plateau I rode back to Livno city on the same trail. For more details check above Interactive Map, below Notes and Gallery of the route.
