The section of Via Dinarica from Stap to Struge overlaps with the route of the Velebit Hiking Trail, so orientation is not difficult. From the karst valley of Stap, the route first ascends to the base of the picturesque rocky peak of Stapina. Behind it, to the left, there is a trail branch leading from the Velebit Hiking Trail to the Stone Gallery. This magnificent rocky labyrinth can be visited along an attractive but demanding hiking trail in the shape of number eight. The Velebit Hiking Trail continues southwards, to the wide plateau of Malo Rujno, and then also to the plateau of Veliko Rujno with a chapel in the middle of the plateau. From the edge of Veliko Rujno, the trail starts ascending through the forest towards the pass of Buljma and towards the plateau of Struge, where there is a mountain shelter of Zadar mountaineers. It takes 7 to 8 hours of hiking to pass the section from Stap to Struge.
