Description

After 7 km on 942 meter above the sea level you will reach the 16. century St. Bolfenk church. Legend has it that St. Bolfenk decided where to build the church in such a way, that he threw an axe in a specific direction. Next to the church there is a linden tree, which was planted to commemorate the Peace of Westphalia, at the end of the Thirty Years’ War, in 1648.
After 17,5 km you will pass first refreshment point Grmovškov dom where you can charge your e-bike batteries. Here is also a Bike park Kope, where you can challenge your adrenaline.
Tour passes another refreshment stop on 25 km. Mountain hut Pesnik was built before the World War II. After 1945 its role was significant because the Hut Ribniška koča was burned down. They renamed it to Shelter house Pesnik. Today, they are known for the best mushroom soup in the area, and also enable charging of e-bike batteries.
On tour you’ll pass the outdoor museum of forestry Lepšnik. An exhibition of various forestry equipment, used in forestry work, show us how important was the wood processing for people who lived on Pohorje.
