Overview of the mountain biking route:
Medvednica is the mountain situated in north Croatia near Zagreb capital. The trail along the ridge is hard and long. Most of the sections are placed on the singletracks and dirt roads along the beech forest. During and after rainy days the trail is very muddy. Most of the sections are labeled for hiking too. Be careful on the labeled sections for hiking. I don’t recommend the ride during weekends, because there are many hikers on the trail. On the trail there are few huts, restaurants and many resting places. Most of them are near the peak of Medvednica named Sljeme. The route can be combined with the most of the routes on Medvednica mountain.
Getting there: Europe, Croatia, Zagreb, Podsused.
