Velika Planina translates as "Big mountain" and has natural trails all over it, and from the west a gondola/chairlift to the top

You can park and ride from the south and there are some amazing trails/footpaths to ride trail style. If you just want to go up and down on the gondola then the best way down is the Dolski Graben path, dropping 5500ft and taking most poeple around 40mins to descend - yes thats a 40min downhill singletrack footpath :)

My absolutely favourite trail ever is the Dolski Graben footpath. Natural awesome, limestone, woods, loam - this has it all.
The mountain has many other trails and there is a almost hour long ridge line you can do!
