Few years before I heard about interesting trail named 888 by its nearby peak Sveti Peter 888 meters high. We parked our car in Soteska near technical museum. Soteska is a settlement on the left bank of the Krka River in the Municipality of Dolenjske Toplice in Slovenia. The area is part of the historical region of Lower Carniola.

Although this route is short and there is enough time to hike & bike on Kuželjska stena in one day, Andrej and I decided to go in Kuželj one day earlier to spend some quality time with our friend Vjeran who has cottage located near creek Velika Belica, surrounded with hills. In nightime during clear sky from there you can see all the stars in the world. Since korona virus lockdown Vjeran spent his time over there working from “office”, and during lunchtime building MTB trails. Two trails named PM and AM are finished and have everything that mtb trails should have: jumps, bents, steep, exposed and root sections. Access gravel road starts in front of his house, and both trails end near his backyard. So, if you find yourself in the neighborhood of Brod na Kupi, be sure to plan bike&hike ride on Kuželjska stena and PM and AM trails near cottage. Fun fact is that Horvat, who made Horvat ladders (Horvatove stube), famous hiking trail in Zagreb, is Vjeran’s ancestor, so there is some trailbulding skills carved in his blood.
