Gozd Martuljek is a settlement in the municipality of Kranjska Gora in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. After the World War I this area was full of flour mills, charocoal burners and forges. Today this place breathes some more peaceful way of life and is a real promised land for outdoor adventures. From the Gozd Martuljek you have a nice view on south to Škrlatica mountain which is part of Julian Alps. On the north, there is Trupejevo Poldne peak which is part of Western Karawanks. This peak is accessible from Gozd Martuljek and today my friend Žac and I decided to visit this peak that allegedly has a nice view to Julian Alps and South Austria.

First 11 km is ascend on paved road. At the time, in neighbour town Faak am See (Austria) there was some kind of Harley Davidson  convention, so the road was full of different kinds of motorcycles. Luckily on 11th km we found some quiet place and entered the woods and there started ascend on unpaved road which offered us some spectacular views on Kranjska Gora and grasslands.


Then comes pushing the bike and afterwards bike&hike. At 25th km we left our bikes at the section and hiked our way to the Trupejevo Poldne peak and enjoyed the view. I won’t even try to describe it, it’s best to see it for yourself in video.

Biggest suprise for me was that this trail is driveable with pure XC bike and Žac demonstrated that on his hardtail. Technically the hardest part of the route is singletrack after intersection to the top, because on the left side you are always few cm from stroking your pedals to the ground and on the right side there is steep slope and above that you have narrow trail in front of you with roots.

Žac casually talking to his wife on the phone assuring her that he will manage to get in time for dinner while carrying his bike. ( I don’t know which of that is harder)

    Pozdrav, puno hvala na pohvalama. Sad si me malo uhvatio na krivoj nozi, još nisam stigao odvoziti neke stvari koje sam imao u planu za ovu, a odvozio sam neke koje nisam planirao da ću voziti. Uglavnom od dužih putovanja ću svratiti na Vranicu i par dana ću otići u Tolmin pa ponovno voziti Matajur, Razor, Krn i Kobariški stol. Možda se koji vikend odvezem u Austriju i Italiju. Hercegovina mi je ove godine bilo veliko otkriće i tamo sam upoznao odličnu ekipu pa bih se volio i tamo još koji put se zaletiti. U Hrvatskoj bi od većih stvari volio odvoziti Vaganski vrh i Biokovo pa spust sa Vošca planinarskom stazom. Možda i Dinaru opet odvozim, ali to mi nije prioritet. Preko zime ću (nadam se) za vikend odvesti pokoji otok. A ovaj vikend nešto dogovaram odlazak u Sloveniju, ali to ćemo još vidjeti 🙂

    Have you ever before had problems with your hosting? I’m open for referrals as my webhost
    is dreadful at the moment.
