The next day after I visited NP Krka, i decided sightseeing island Čiovo. I have never been in Trogir, so after I walked through its streets and grabbed  some breakfast I started following gpx track around Čiovo which I got from a Dropbike forum member ( thank you Marin). This route is actually pretty relaxing and could be ideal for peaceful ride near sea.

If you follow this track, you will circle around the whole island. Note : at the point marked on the map you will probably have to carry your bike because it would probably be overgrown by vegetation. If you want to avoid that, then you should probably go back to place Liveli, and find another path to Žedno. I liked better this route the way I rode it.
