Description of path

The route begins at the Petrol gas station by Dolenjska cesta, at Rudnik in Ljubljana. Follow the signpost to the small village Orle along an ascending local asphalt road through a forest. The road soon levels out and you should reach Orle after 2500 meters (about 20 minutes). Some hayracks stand by the gravel road, and the hills are covered with fields. A restaurant stands in the center of the village, and there is a beautiful view toward the north and south. Once you leave the village, the road begins to descend. About 1000 meters from the village, you'll come upon a monument – a carved stone column dedicated to the last battles for the liberation of Ljubljana. A quarry stretches to the right of the monument, and if you turn the other way you'll have a splendid view of Orle. A little farther, the road splits into three: a macadamized road below the quarry, a macadamized road above the quarry (toward Mali Lipoglav) and an asphalt road toward Podmolnik. Our journey continues along the latter. Just after crossing the municipal border you should see a beautiful pond at Dolinar. A short ascent follows immediately afterwards. Then, the road descends past Podmolnik, Žabja vas and the Tinček boarding house to Dobrunje, where there is a beautiful view of Sostro. The entire trip from Rudnik to Dobrunje should take about 50 minutes if you cycle at a moderate speed without stopping. You can return along the same route. If you have a mountain or trekking bike, you can also take an alternate route past Bizovik and Spodnja Hrušica (where you should turn left) and over Golovec. After descending from Golovec to Dolenjska cesta, turn left to the starting point.
