Trail "Rt Dubrovnik"

Where Dubrovnik settlement ends the first part of the trail begins. It leads along the coast through a grove on the outskirts of which there is a beach. Next to this splendid beach therapeutic mud “Segal” is found. You will come across a door that should be closed. The trail covered with sharp rocks starts to ascend slightly. From the top of the trail beautiful view opens overlooking Košljun bay to the right. Regardless of how difficult this trail is, it is not very long. Spare inner tubes should be brought just in case, since sharp rocks and thorns can easily puncture the tires. Last part of the trail leads alongside pastoral cottages and corrals.
