the National Park, there are over 150 km of hiking trails. Certainly
the most frequented trail is the one leading from the reception area
through the Velika Paklenica Canyon to the Paklenica Mountain Hut
(about a 2 hour walk).
From this point, head towards
Buljma (3 hours), Vaganski Vrh and Sveto Brdo. Trails also head
towards the source of Velika Paklenica, Ivine Vodice (about 3 hours).
Visitors often choose to take the trail from the Velika Paklenica
Canyon, through Jurline and Njive to Mala Paklenica. The entire
round trip is about 5-6 hours. There are numerous other possibilities:
from the Forest Hut Lugarnica to Mala Močila and Crni Vrh (about
2 hours), from Crni Vrh to Velika Močila, etc.
The short trails through the park are also interesting, such as
the one from the Mountain House to Stražbenica, and then on to Veliko
Rujno or Golić. Increasingly, hikers are choosing to hike from Anića
luka to the Manita Peć cave towards Vidakov kuk, and then right
to Njiva or left to Tomiće or opting to take the road to Dokoza
and Mali and Veliki Vaganac. From Milovac, one can head towards
Bojinac, a unique formation of South Velebit.
