Description of the trail

The cycle path begins in the town of Kringa. Path is 27.7 km long and has a total height difference of 378 m. Due to the configuration of the terrain and the technical characteristics of the trail, we classify it as a medium-difficult trail, marked in yellow. The path connects the slopes of Limska draga with the very foot of the valley, through which it passes until the turn towards Barat and the intersection with other bicycle paths, and leads to the village of Kanfanar.


The first part of the path takes us along a well-maintained macadam path (which is also pedestrian), and after approximately 600 meters we reach a more demanding descent that takes us directly to the foot of the Draga. We continue driving on a mostly flat terrain with a dirt surface and forest paths, approximately 7 kilometers until the ascent that takes us along a wide macadam road, 4.3 km long, to the town of Barat. In the area of ​​Barat, we pass partly through forest and macadam roads via Rajkova Stancija to the asphalted local road Kringa - Radetići, which we use for a length of 200 meters to turn again onto the macadam road that leads to the village of Hrvatini. In the village of Hrvatini, we take a short turn onto the local road Kringa - Sv. Lovreč, which we leave after 100 meters, and through the villages of Gregorci and Pavletići, we head towards Jelovci and Piškova Stancija, then towards Vitasi and Pajci, where, entering the macadam road, there is a gentle ascent, about 2.5 kilometers long, until we return to Kringa.


The route passes through diverse landscapes typical for this area of ​​Istria and the majority of the route is driven on roads covered with vegetation, therefore it is also suitable for driving in the summer months. It is designed to connect the paths of the municipalities of Kanfanar (271,273), Sv. Lovreč (616) and Tinjan (615) and thus the interior with the coast because the paths of St. They connect Lovreč and Kanfanar with the paths of Rovinj (201) and Vrsar (174).
