Shorter and with the exception of one climb, which you can also traverse, a very informative cycling trip.
Zgornje Jezersko – Spodnji Kraj – kamnolom lehnjaka – Sp. Virnik – Zgornje Jezersko
This trip starts by going down the main road to the first turnoff in Spodnji Kraj, where you turn right towards the upper Kokra valley. As you cycle through the valley, the view of Mt. Virnikov Grintovec opens up to your right. Continue straight along the asphalt road and after the first climb you will reach the travertine deposits, which are a unique feature of this area. Continue straight and while driving you can observe the travertine-forming spring. After a good kilometre you come to a junction and turn right. After crossing the stream, the path shortly climbs steeply to Smrečje, where you quietly follow the path passing the holiday houses. You soon reach the pasture under Golobja peč, and then carefully, so as not to frighten the grazing animals, you descend to the organic farm Spodnji Virnik, where once again you meet the captivating Grintovci mountains. We suggest leaving your bike at the farm and going on foot to the travertine-forming spring, only a few minutes away. It is a special natural sight, where rock is formed practically before our eyes, as the water has a high content of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), which is already produced at the source and forms travertine. We recommend that you bring a backpack with you, as the Spodnji Virnik organic farm always offers excellent dairy products, from cheeses, yogurts to cottage cheese. From the farm, go down the gravel road to the valley and return to the starting point along the main road
