Trail ‘Rt Dubrovnik’
Where Dubrovnik settlement ends the first part of the trail begins. It leads along the coast through a grove on the outskirts of which there is a beach. Next to this splendid beach therapeutic mud “Segal” is found. You will come across a door that should be closed. The trail covered with sharp rocks starts to ascend slightly. From the top of the trail beautiful view opens overlooking Košljun bay to the right. Regardless of how difficult this trail is, it is not very long. Spare inner tubes should be brought just in case, since sharp rocks and thorns can easily puncture the tires. Last part of the trail leads alongside pastoral cottages and corrals. The trail ends on the road to Povljana, 1 km away, while 400 m away there is also the trail of “Ptica” in Veliko blato.
After 1 km from Povljana towards Stara Povljana bay, turn left at the crossroads at the chapel. Turning right would get you on “Prutna” trail. The trail begins with an earth path leading to the beautiful Stara Povljana bay, and onward across inaccessible terrain and sharp rocks. This trail requires better endurance, both from you and your bike. The trail ends in the town of Smokvica.
After 1 km from Povljana towards Stara Povljana bay, turn right at the crossroads at the chapel. The path starts with an asphalt road through the fields; slight ascent follows. The entire drive is through rocky environment along the very crest of Prutna peninsula. To the left there is a beautiful view overlooking Stara Povljana bay, while Povljana channel and the island of Vir can be seen on the right.
Trail ‘Salty-Solana Pag’
Very close to Povljana there is a very attractive path, narrow and not too crowded road (except 2,7 km on the main road nearby city Pag). The drive leads to the area of pitoreque place Košljun, part of the city of Pag and maybe the most interesting part saltern ‘Solana Pag’ (to see in which way sea salt used to collect).
Rules on the trail
Plan ahead: Know your equipment, your ability and the area in wich you are riding – and prepare accordingly. Be self-sufficient at all times. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear. Always yeild trail: Make known your approach well in advance. A friendly greeting or bell is considerate and works well; don’t startle others. Leave no trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Practice low-impact cycling. Stay on existing trails, don’t create new ones. Don’t cut switchbacks. Ride on open trails only: Respect trail and road closures (ask if not sure), avoid possible tresspass on private land. Control your bicycle: Inattention for even a second can cause problems. Obey all bicycle speed regulations and recommendations. Never spook animals: All animals are startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. This can be dangerous! Running cattle and disturbing wildlife is a serious offense.
