Cycling routes in the Sabotin area - biking to the front
Sabotin and its neighboring peaks are also of interest to cyclists. The trails are thus steep for the most part and scattered with traces from the First World War. Sabotin, Sveta Gora and Škabrijel are the three pock-marked mountains which sustained heavy shelling.
Five routes have been selected for you, of which three are loops. They will lead to interesting records and traces of the First World War. All of the routes are of medium to high difficulty. We recommend using a mountain bike.
