Platak Route 5
22km Moderate difficulty, the route can be downloade here or can be followed using the Bike Rijeka app.
This route follows Route 5 of the marked routes in Platak. It is possible to start either at the regular carpark, or to park lower down where the route joins the main road to Platak, 3 km from the turning from the old Zagreb road.
The route starts with a long climb on road from the lower parking spot to Platak, or ends with this if you park at Platak.
After passing Veliki Dom (Big Hut) the route continues relatively flat for a few km before turning left onto forest trails. Most of the trail is through forest but with several open spots with views over the bay of Kvarner.
The sign is well marked after Veliki Dom.
The only realistic way to get to Platak is to drive. There are no public transport options unfortunately.
