Radovna

Cycling trail Radovna

The name Radovna is used for a village, a stream and a 20-kilometre-long valley. The narrow valley lies in the Triglav National Park between the slopes of Mežakla and Pokljuka, and is covered by hilly meadows. The characteristic bumpy shape is the result of the deposition of glacial till.

We set off from the car park in front of the Slovenian Alpine Museum. Continue in the direction of Vrata and after 300m turn left into a settlement of blocks of flats. Go past the blocks and cross the green bridge on the left, with the Triglavska Bistrica flowing underneath. There is a short climb up a dirt road into the forest to reach the tennis courts in Mlačca. Passing by, there is a short, gentler climb and the dirt road joins the main road leading to the Radovna valley. Turn right – 800m from the starting point. All the way up the asphalt road to Kosmačevo Prevala (on the right is the turn-off to Kot valley). This is the highest point of our tour, 845m – 3.15km. From the preval we start descending and at the crossroads we turn left in the direction of Bled (Zgornja Radovna) – 3,45km. We descend a steep incline to Zgornja Radovna. The asphalt road leads past the Psnak Inn and after 50 metres turns into a macadam road. At the next crossroads turn left, there is a signpost for Gogalova lipa – 4.4km. Follow the asphalt road to the second set of houses in Zgornja Radovna. On Goga’s farm there is the Gogalova lipa, which is estimated to be 800 years old – 5.2km. From here a dirt road leads to the junction with the main road leading to Bled. Turn left at the crossroads – 6.00km. Gradually descending the whole time. Pass Psnak’s sawmill and mill and continue towards Lake Kreda 9.0km – 675m.

On the left is a wooden footbridge which leads us over the Radovna River. Follow the macadam road, the lake is on our right. The road continues past the lake and joins the main road at the Požgana Radovna monument – 10.0km. Follow this road to the village of Krnica. Turn right over a large bridge under which the Radovna River flows – 16.5 km. Go up to the main road and turn left at the crossroads for Bled – 17.0 km. Turn left at the church in the middle of the village in Zgornje Gorje – 18.1 km (signpost for Višelnica-Mevkuž). Climb slightly, then descend again to the junction in Spodnje Gorje, where turn left for Jesenice – 19.0 km.

From here we ascend along the main road leading to Jesenice. When we reach the village of Kočna (the second highest point on our tour at 672 m), we start to descend steeply towards Jesenice. At the end of the descent, pass under the overpass for the train and the motorway and continue descending to the crossroads where there is a bridge over the Sava Dolinka. Turn left here in the direction of Podmežakla – 26.3km. The road passes through the village and follow it all the way, passing the Podmežakla sports hall on the left and continuing on to join the cycle path after the underpass for the motorway – 29.5km. The cycle track runs along the motorway and leads past the Karavanke plateau on towards Mojstrana. At the bridge over the Sava River (Savški most), the cycle track joins the main road. Turn left and follow it. It leads past the ski resort to Mojstrana. At the info point, cross the bridge (the Triglavska Bistrica flows underneath) and turn left at the main crossroads in the direction of Vrata. After 500m drive we are at the parking lot in front of the Slovenian Alpine Museum – 38,7km.
