In the area from Tršće to Risnjak National Park, Via Dinarica follows the route of Gorski Kotar Hiking Trail. The trail is well kept and maintained. From Tršće, we first need to climb to the village of Kraljev Vrh by road. From there, we then continue by following the hiking trail markings towards the south and towards the hill of Sveta gora with a church.

From Sveta gora onwards, the route takes us very steeply through the forest, as we descend towards the canyon of the Kupa River. This is the source area of the Kupa River, with hiking trail markings taking us straight to the river source. The source of the Kupa is extraordinarily attractive, since the river springs from a clear lake and immediately flows as a large river.

 From the source of the Kupa River, the route ascends to the village of Razloge. From there, we need to take the forest road (to the right) towards Crni Lug. Mountain landscapes in the area of Crni Lug are remarkably beautiful and attractive.

Thanks a lot Frantisek, your comments were so useful😊 The path to Sveta Gora church is quite ok, but be careful to take the right path at the crossings. After the church use the gravel road down to the main road. Then follow the road and do not turn to the path indicated on the gpx data, instead walk further down to the hairpin in around 300m and then turn to the right. Follow strictly this path and you will get out of the forest very close to the Robinsonski Camp. A really nice place with very kind hosts (http://www.robinzon-hrib.com). We spontaneously spent a zero day on this calm place.

The area is pretty amazing with very deep valleys and nice hilltops. Kupa river spring is very cool and you can drink it :). As others have indicated there’s an issue with the trail after Svetla gora church. Going down I didn’t find it and took the gravel road instead, going up to Hrib the original trail is non existent . I think there is a newer and better path if you go about 200 meters further down the road and then make a right in the curve (but I unfortunately didn’t take it and stuck to the original route :( ). Robinzonski camp up at Hrib is just the nicest place with the kindest people that really love nature and are very supportive for hikers, took a rest day here and had a really calm time and got a lot of knowledge from the owners Mladen and Saňa. After Razloge theres a long road walk with the last 3km on a very busy road, would be super cool and safer if at least this part had a better alternative. Cerny Lug has a shop, post office (open mon, wed, fri, 13:30 - 14:30) and a bar (closed 14-16)

Great place to camp at 2nd house you see entering Hrib Southbound. Bar, restaurant, tiny cabins, beautiful spot with views and great hosts. Trail is really bad at the 2 spots others mentioned. Really needs someone with a chainsaw to go through there. Apparently an ice storm from 3 years ago has caused this problem.
