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.

Caretaker in Planinska kuća Frbežari recommended me diffetent route from Crkva Male gospe and it was a very good idea. I recommend. So after you see the chuch you go back a little bit from where you came from (in the way to Kraljev vrh). And you will see very soon the sign to Zamost on the right. Here turn right and follow this route. It's not really maintained, but it's marked very good, so it's quite easy to follow. I didn't have any problems following it. Then you come to Zamost and you walk on the asphalt road to the bridge that crosses Kupa (in the way to Hrvatsko, but you don't go there). Before you go on the bridge, turn right on the nice turist path that goes along Kupa. At Tratinčica you can sleep and eat.

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)
