Ondulating section with a few river crossings. Fantastic view towards Borov Kamak rocks and downhill to Borovitsa village.

When you hit the tarmac of the village turn left and keep for about a 1,2km almost at the opposite end. Then turn left upwards. Ondulating terrain that passes below the beautiful rocks.

At one section the path goes, for very shortly, steep down and then steep up. Get off the bike.

Follow the path (it is flat, then a little hilly and at the end it’s a tunnel forest downhill) which will lead to the tarmac road in Falkovets. “Madona Inn” hotel is on the left.
