The Trans Karavanke MTB Trail extends from Jezersko to Tromeja and can also be travelled in the opposite direction. Mostly it runs along forest roads on the sunny slopes of the Karavanke Mountains, and only climbs to a peak and the border with Austria at its westernmost point, Peč, or Tromeja (the tri-border).
The Jezersko - Medvodje section is temporarily closed for nature conservation reasons. The trails starts/ends in Medvodje above Tržič.
The trail was created within the Alpe Adria Karavanke/Karawanken project, implemented in the frame of the Cooperation Programme Interreg V-A Slovenija-Avstrija and co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development.
The 132 km, which are divided into 5 stages, includes visits to the Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana, Tržič, the Dovžan Gorge and several popular mountain outposts (Valvasor's Lodge under Stol, Dom Pristava in Javorniški Rovt, Alpine Lodge at Zelenica, Dom na Kofcah), but the biggest prize will be beautiful views and enjoying the unspoiled nature.
The trail is suitable for well-prepared mountain bikers, as the daily stages are generally from 25 to 35 km long, but at most, 1,650 altitude meters are overcome in one day.
Markings and signposts with the Trans Karavanke sign will guide bikers and help them orientate along the trail. The use of the trail is at your own risk. Keepers of the Trans Karavanke trail are Alpine Clubs of the Alpine Association of Slovenia.
