The trail, which you can start with the Učna pot Kraški gozd (Learning trail karst forest), offers a wonderful cycling tour across the area of high karst, featuring karstic field with, sinkholes, disappearing rivers, karst depressions, as well as the deepest pit in the area. A slow cycling tour along the cycling route will take you about an hour.

The road joins with Matuckarjeva pot trail. If you wish for a more diverse cycling head along the Kamparetova pot trail with many beautiful views on the Idrijca valley (to cycle the Kamparetova pot trail you need good cycling equipment and helmet).

The start of the cycling tour along the high karst is on the way towards Predgriže, which branches off the regional road Godovič  - Črni Vrh. The road first takes you through Predgriže. In the centre, take to the right and continue along the road toward Idrijski Log. After a kilometre you reach the gravel road which first takes you across the fields, but soon you get to the forest offering real refreshment in the summer months. Just a few metres before joining the local road toward Idrijski log make a stop and head into the forest to see the deepest pit in this area, the Habečkovo brezno pit.

When you get to the local road, turn right and go down to the hamlet Koševnik. At the side of the road at the beginning of Koševnik a path branches off to the right, taking you to Brinov grič (Juniper hill) – about 30 minutes of walking.

If you wish only to cycle, continue to the crossroads where the road takes you towards Pevc and the Andrejčkovo brezno pit. Here stands a crucifix in memory of the victims of war. If you wish to continue along The high karst trail, turn left in this crossroads. Soon there is a gravel road branching off the road on the right which after about 100 metres brings you to an inscription in the rock called Firma (the Firm). Return back to the road and continue your way along the high karst landscape full of sinkholes and other karst surface features. A short climb follows from which you turn left and join the Matuckarjeva pot trail. From here you can cycle on towards Črni Vrh, or you can cycle the rest of the Matuckarjeva pot trail.
