Description of the route: Moderately demanding route with numerous demanding ascents but with pleasant and long descents. The route runs on the comparatively not busy asphalt road of the 3rd class. It connects the northern and southern parts of Turiec and runs in the promontory of the National Park of  Veľká Fatra.
It offers options to visit the ruins of the Castle Sklabiňa from the 13th century or the Museum of Karol Plicka in Blatnica, reconstructed manor from the 18th century, the native house of poet Ján Kollár in Mošovce and other historic monuments. The swimming pool in Drienok or the holiday resort of the spa town Turčianske Teplice is ideal for those who seek refreshment in hot days.
