This route is located in the hinterland of Trogir and leads to Jelinak hill with a farm of wind turbines. The start and finish are outside the local Kumpar konoba in Blizna Donja village, where you can also stock up after the ride. From the konoba head north uphill to Blizna Gornja. As soon as the descent starts, go right onto gravel. Follow the road all the way to the local asphalt road. Briefly on the road and then left to a valley with two ponds named Bliznice. From the ponds on a single track behind the local church onto gravel that leads north to Vilaja. Go uphill all the way to the crossing. At the crossing go slightly right and uphill and make a semicircle west and return to the crossing. Here go straight south and downhill to the first houses in Bristvica and past them to the road. Briefly on the road left and at the first large bend go right onto gravel. Follow the path to the road and then right again onto another path to the asphalt road. Briefly on the road right to the turn off to the wind turbines. Left onto wide gravel and up the Jelinak hill to the wind turbines. From the top there is a wonderful view of Kaštela bay, Trogir, Split and Biokovo in the background. Continue east to the last wind turbine. Take the same road back to Blizna Donja.
