While we were still in Žuljana on summer vacation, near Potomje I decided to visit sv. Juraj trail, which I heard about from Dalibor.  But before hiking on st. Juraj trail I took a XC ride that starts in Potomje, goes under the tunnel which leads to the west side of Pelješac. From there I followed unpaved road which has a nice look on the sea and local vineyards.

On a picture bellow you can see vineyards.

After reaching asphalt road I descended back to Potomje, but just before reaching Potomje I turned left on unpaved road that goes through another vineyards.

From Potomje I decided to visit st. Juraj trail which starts near old stone church and from there it takes about 40 minutes to hike to the peak. While hiking with the bike you can inspect all technical sections for descents. There are not many technical sections, maybe few, trail is mostly flow, as much as Dalmatian karst can be.
