K54 - Gozd
By bike to the paragliding takeoff point
Gozd ("Forest") below Kriška Gora is a favourite starting point for ascents of Kriška Gora and Tolsti Vrh, and it is also the site of an important takeoff point for paragliders. At just below 900 metres of elevation it is the highest point of this cycling tour.

Tržič–Križe–Poljana–Gozd–back the same way
The starting point for cycling tours is in the city centre, opposite the Tržič bus station. Parking is possible in public parking areas (parking lots at the Municipality of Tržič, on Predilniška Road at the entrance to the city-BPT, at the Tržič Olympians Hall, along the street Za Mošenikom, among others).
In Tržič, head south along the main road. At the crossroads, take the left road, which climbs slightly towards Pristava. In Pristava, ride past the bus station and continue towards Križe. Turn left in the village (follow the markings) onto a road that at the end of the village turns into gravel and ascends towards Poljana and on towards Zg. Vetrno. Here you will join a paved road and follow it for a bit more than 2 km to Gozd. Return to your starting point by the same route.
good to know
A shorter variant starts and finishes in Križe (at the parking lot by the cemetery or at the primary school)
