The first Slovenian Biking Trail

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.
