This route is ideal for e-mtb and these kind of trails are now fully enjoyable and more rideable uphill when you have some assistance. You can also ride this route with normal bike, but be prepared to walk a little bit more on the ascents at the ridge. We parked at the parking spot of cable car to Velika Planina because my plan was to ride Dolski Graben from Velika Planina, after we descent from Kamnik. Luckily, we had time, but trail from Velika Planina was nearly destroyed due to large amounts of rain that poured out last year.

Vajnež is the highest peak of Belščica 2104 m high. Few years before, Ivan, Vjeko and me went on Stol (peak near Vajnež) so we actually knew what to expect on ascent. Good amount of that route overlap with ascent to Vajnež, so we changed a little bit of our ascent to explore something new. This is the reason why we were so tired when we were just below the peak.

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.
