304 (ex 554) RASPADALICA

This circular trail starts at the petrol station in Buzet, leads to Raspadalica, a huge rock which rises above the town of Buzet, and then returns back to the town.
At the very beginning, the trail joins a marked path and runs northwards along ploughland to the village of Strana. For the following five hundred metres you should follow the marks that will lead you to a narrow path on your left side and to Strana. Just by the village church of St. Mary (crkva sv. Marije) there is another marked path that climbs uphill, and it is precisely the path you need in order to make your way to Raspadalica, which is the favourite launch pad of both domestic and foreign paragliders. On your way, you’ll cross the railway and ascend a steep slope to reach the cliff that will take you westwards to the top of Raspadalica which offers a stunning view of the Istrian countryside. You’ll get the chance to see Motovun, one of the most preserved medieval Istrian towns, as it stands out in the distance. The trail continues across the pad and further along the cliff where it joins the IPP (Istrian mountain trail). At the crossroads, the trail runs downhill to Buzet, first to Buzet railway station and then to the village of Finderli. From Finderli, the trail continues to descend along the gravel road to Buzet. At the first sharp bend take the left turn into the forest and continue along a forest path up to the water catchment tank. The trail descends onto a gravel road and, next to a little chapel situated some fifty metres further, it returns on the road it previously ascended. The trail continues to descend along the single-track path to the hamlet of Korenika where it joins the asphalt road which will follow you until coming to a junction with the county road. At the junction the trail turns left and reaches the starting point of this 9-kilometre-long trail.
