Few years before, we shuttled on Kraljica trail and I remember that this trail as one of the best mtb trails with few serious jumps and drops. Difference now is that we decided to go uphill by bikes and we also  visited another trail called Škabrijel. Ascent is most of the time on asphalt road, near the end we connected to macadam that leads on the entrance to Škabrijel. At the entrance is steel tower with nice view on surroundings, you can see mountain peaks and sea. Škabrijel trail was very nice, similar to Kraljica trail, but little easier. There were very well built jumps, gap jumps and drops. Few drops are very big, but mostly  there are chicken lines, so you can choose what to ride.

Even though this trail is very though in perfect conditions, we had few setbacks along the way that made though trail even more difficult. At the peak there was still big amount of snow that cowered the trail, so we had a freeride on steep slope. Middle of the train was at some sections congested with baby head sized stones which where along the trail due to snow melting and avalanches. After that, grass was little bit too high and hid some rocks beneath. At the lower parts there was still leaves at the trail that make the trail fun, but also slippery and dangerous if there are stones and drops beneath. All in all, trail was very fun, and for a very long time was on my “to do list”. I think that we were probably first that rode Kanin – Bovec descent this season because we saw no tracks on the snow and at the reception they recommended us not to ride this trail yet due to snow conditions.
