LKT origin - Logaška Kolesarska
The first Slovenian Biking Trail
Logatec community is the center of a hilly
landscape in the northern part of Notranjska region on the border between
the Dinaric and Sub-alpine worlds. This is a special area and its places
could leave a deep impact on the soul and remain in the traveller’s memory
forever. Unconsciously, he will carry them around and from time to time they
will emerge for a moment or two, along with the traveller’s powerful wish to
visit them again.
And here the first Slovenian Biking Trail was
born and it developed now into a specific biking system LKT with numbers of
trails included, and it is considered as the origin of the Land of biKing
LKT Biking Trail
The LKT origin trail followed existing forest
roads, field paths, and little used local roads. Arrows marked "LKT"
indicated the right direction, and there were six checkpoints with stamps
along the trail, mostly at tourist farms where we could get a snack, find
accommodation, or learned more about local points of interest.
A 90-kilometer bicycle circuit leaded from
Logatec through the vast forests of the karst plateaus, between the swallow-holes
of the disappearing Planinsko polje, and past numerous caves and sinks to
the viewpoint peaks and ridges of the undulating Rovte hills.
With its interesting path and elements that
defined it as the first Slovenian Biking Trail, LKT has evaluated biking as
a tourist and recreational activity in a natural environment.
