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.

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.

The trail to Izvor Kupe is a real highlight! But then it would be nice if there would be a trail from Razloge to Mt. Risnjak. It is not nice to walk 14 km on Asphalt and I am sure, this could be a gorgeous forest trek! http://geraldtrekkt.blogspot.de/2016/10/via-dinarica-1300-kilometer-durch-die_19.html

At the back side of the church Mala Gospa it seems like the trail doesn't go on. But when you enter the forest, you find faint markings. There is no path any more, but it is possible to follow the markings, without too much bushwacking. It is not very far to the road down below. When I see stretches like that on the Via Dinarica, which are quite frequent, especially in Croatia, I ask myself if the creators of this route ever hiked the thing. Probably not, at least not the whole thing recently. That is not o.k. Before promoting and publishing a potentially very nice trail, it is absolutely necessary to check it on the ground and not purely rely on old trails on old maps, as I suppose it has been done. http://geraldtrekkt.blogspot.de/2016/10/via-dinarica-1300-kilometer-durch-die_19.html
