Overview of mountain biking route:
Veliki Snežnik is the highest mountain in south east Slovenia. The mountain is situated near the border line with Croatia. The easy access point to Veliki Snežnik peak is from Ilirska Bistrica city via Sviščaki village. The trail is fast and easy. The final ascent to the peak is for hiking only. For ride back I used the trail via Velika Milanja. This is the sightseeing point with magnificent opened view to the north west course. All the trail is dry and rocky.
Getting there: Europe, Slovenia, Ljubljana, Ilirska Bistrica or from Croatia, Rijeka, Ilirska Bistrica.
