High Point

A great alpine trail from the top of the Kanin with a descent of 1800 meter.
It's a cool nature Singletrail with very difficult descents because the trails are not arranged The conditions of the trail can change in periodes.
The trail starts with a steep and rocky hiking trial where not every part is rideable. (If you don't want to ride this part you could use the skipist beside that trail till the italien boarder).
After the first part you get to the middle lift station at the italien boarder (Prevala 2067m), over there you have to go right to slovenia. When you see a small steep gravel trail you are on the correct way. From here everything is rideable... if you have skills for difficult alpine trails Wink !
The first part over there starts with the gravel trail and continues into a stony grass trail. When you reach a high of 1000m the trail continues in the woods.

Hard single trail, but very funny. Sometimes you have to carry your Bike Find the way from Station D: Walk Up the Skipist to to the highest lift. About 400m, 50hm.. Drive down the Skipist in the other Side of the Mountain in north direction down to the next lift. Directly behind the lift the narrow trail Starts in east direction. Enjoy! Follow the single trail a few kilometers until IT ends in a dirt Road at a single House. The trail continues directly behind the House to the right Side. Not easy to find. Follow the path Till bovec.
