Gozd Martuljek is a settlement in the municipality of Kranjska Gora in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. After the World War I this area was full of flour mills, charocoal burners and forges. Today this place breathes some more peaceful way of life and is a real promised land for outdoor adventures. From the Gozd Martuljek you have a nice view on south to Škrlatica mountain which is part of Julian Alps. On the north, there is Trupejevo Poldne peak which is part of Western Karawanks. This peak is accessible from Gozd Martuljek and today my friend Žac and I decided to visit this peak that allegedly has a nice view to Julian Alps and South Austria.

Omiška Dinara is Hill near Omiš town surrounded with beautiful Cetina river and Adriatic sea. Its highest peak is at 864 m. Omiš is  great town because it has a lots of potencial for outdoor sports (zip line, rafting, hiking, climbing, swimming and of course mountain biking). I heard of Imber trail from a friend from Pelješac, so i decided to visit Omiška Dinara while I was traveling from Ploče to Zagreb. Luckily, I already bought gimbal while riding this trail, because it is very rocky, and stabilization had a lot of job.

I started biking pretty late, at 12:00 o’clock and it was already more than 30 degrees Celsius so I drank a lot of water. At first there is ascent on paved road, then 1 hour hiking . At the top you can enjoy the site, and a rest a bit for downhill section.

I like this trail a lot because it has everything, nice view, rock sections and flowy sections in the woods. On the end of the descent there is Cetina river so you can refresh a little bit before coming back to town. On the beginning of the route, near parking spot, you can see climbers.

Note: This route can be combined with Omiš Kostanje Gata Zakučac route : http://cyclotrail.com/omis-kostanje-gata-zakucac/
