On 5,7 km you will pass the quarry Josipdol. Tonalite quarry was the heart of Josipdol since 1880. Before the II. world war, more than 300 men were working in five quarries. For the most part, they were manufacturing cubes for paving the roads. Only one of the quarries operates today.
On 11,4 km you will reach Lake Jelenovoka, the first natural attraction on your e-bike tour. Lake Jezerc is one of the few glacial forms on Pohorje, and a masterpiece of a smaller creek during the last ice age. You can rest here and admire the beauty of the forests around the lake.
After a while, you will pass the outdoor museum of Forestry Lepšnik. An exhibition of various forestry equipment, used in forestry work, shows us how important wood processing was for people who lived in Pohorje.
You will reach your refreshment point after 19 km. Mountain hut Ribniška koča enables charging e-bike batteries and offer some food. It is an excellent starting-hiking point to the Jezerski vrh and Ribniško Lake, one of the most beautiful natural attractions of Pohorje. You can also hike to Pohorje's highest peak (Črni vrh – 1543 m) and spring (Mrzli studenec – 1490 m). Top of the Pohorje is particularly known for its unique sunsets and blueberry sites.
Some points of interest are in a protected area of NATURA 2000, so you have to reach them by hiking. Please respect the rules that are applied in protected areas.
You will pass mountain hut Pesnik, which was built before World War II. After 1945 its role was significant because the Hut Ribniška koča was burned down. They renamed it Shelter House Pesnik. Today is closed, due to bad conditions with mountain huts on Pohorje.
