The Predigra mountain bike descent is a 2 km long and 400 vertical meters high trail, rated double black diamond and therefore only suitable for experienced mountain bike riders with suitable equipment.

The trail is marked with yellow trail signs that show the route of the trail and the general directions and obstacles on it. It has built berms, a couple of rollers, wooden bridges and rocky sections. Please keep in mind that sometimes hikers venture on the trail and use it for the ascent or descent to the mountain pastures above the Završnica Valley. The descent also crosses the road that leads towards the Valvarsorjev dom mountain hut, therefore extreme caution is required.

Have fun riding “The Foreplay”!
