K37 - Around Begunjščica: Preval, Zelenica
One of the most challenging routes in the Tržič area

Begunjščica, like other peaks in the Karawanks, shows two completely different faces: the southern slopes are grassy and sunny while the northern ones are rocky and shaded. Along this challenging route with 1750 meters of elevation change you will first encounter the more friendly southern part while in the second part of the route you will be glad to reach the warm shelter of Zelenica Mountain Hostel and know that ahead of you is a fantastic descent along the Border Patrol Trail.


Tržič–Podljubelj–Preval pasture–Poljška pasture–Tolsti Vrh–Završnica Valley–Smokuška pasture–Zelenica–Ljubelj–Tržič

good to know

The route is long and physically demanding, suitable only for mountain bikers who are quite fit. You can start in Podljubelj or on Lajba and thus skip the paved part between Tržič and Podljubelj.
