Route

GO3V 28km 1700+

The route runs over three peaks above Nova Gorica - Škabrijel, Sveta Gora and Sabotin. Start at the kayak center in Solkan. From here you continue along the footpath along the Soča under the railway bridge, followed by an asphalt ascent to Solkan. Through the center of Solkan, the signs lead past the church and under the Solkan bypass towards Škabrijel, where the first refreshment stand awaits you. We continue on the right and after 1 km, we start the ascent along the downhill cycling route to Škabrijel  top 646+.

We continue along the ridge of Škabrijel. Follow the descent to the road Nova Gorica - Lokve (Prevala) and after 300 meters the path ( second refreshment)  crosses the road to the right for Sveta gora. After 300 meters of asphalt path, turn onto the mountain / bike path towards the cavern, where you put on your headlamp and carefully continue through the 280-meter-long cavern from the First World War. Follow the ascent along the mountain path on the north side to the statue of Sv. Francis and continue along the ridge to the basilica on Sveta Gora (refreshment point).

We continue at basilica and descend the stairs to the macadam parking lot. From there we continue downhill along a wide macadam road in the direction to Preški vrh.

After about 400 meters of descent, turn sharp left onto a narrow path, from where you continue along the path to the water source. A few meters after the spring, we descend from the path to the right and continue and join the downhill bike path behind it.

We go to the end to the descend and continue to the Solkan bridge, where we descend to the right under the stone railway bridge ( the logiest stone arc in Europe) and continue towards the kayak center -refreshment point.

At the refreshment stand, we board a raft-boat to cross the Soča. After a short ascent we come to the bicycle road and after 2 kilometers we turn left onto a marked single path that leads to Sabotin. After a final climb to Sabotin top at 609+
