[eng] Two impressive natural wonders only a couple of kilometres apart. On this circular cycling route, you will be able to admire the mystical Lake Cerknica and the valley of natural bridges, Rakov Škocjan.

From the parking lot in the village of Dolenje Jezero, head to the village of Otok. This part of the trail follows the "Drvošec" educational trail, so you can stop at one of the three lookouts ("Kuharca", "Klejni vrh" or 10 meters high "Otočec" tower). When you get to the village, continue through, and  after about 500 m turn right. Then you cycle along the southern edge of Lake Cerknica beneath the Javorniki hills. After about 10 km from Otok, the road gets you to the lookout over Lake Cerknica (Cvinger). Continue left to the Rakov Škocjan valley, past Mali naravni most (Small Natural Bridge), over Veliki naravni most (Big Natural Bridge), turn right and follow the circular trail. From Rakov Škocjan, continue towards the village of Zelše, before the village take a right turn and ride past the church of St. Volbenk to Dolenja vas. In the village turn right, cross the little bridge by the fire station and return to the starting point in Dolenje Jezero.

On your way, you cycle past the periodic spring Skadulca, ponor caves of Velika and Mala Karlovica, two natural bridges, the famous church in Zelše and many atractive lookouts.

[slo] Kolesarjenje po poteh jezerskega moža Jezerka, ki naj bi po legendi živel v luknjah ob Cerkniškem jezeru. Kolesarska pot ob jezeru in Rakovem Škocjanu ponuja obilo priložnosti za ogled takšnih in drugačnih kraških pojavov.

S parkirišča ob Dolenjem Jezeru krenete proti Otoku. Na poti sprva kolesarite ob učni poti Drvošec, tako da se lahko ustavite na kateri od opazovalnic ali na razglednem stolpu Otočec. Kolesarite skozi vas Otok, nato pa zavijete desno in se po južnem robu Cerkniškega jezera peljete ob vznožju Javornikov. Po kakih 10 km od vasi Otok pridemo do razgledne točke na Cerkniško jezero (Cvinger). Tu zavijemo levo proti Rakovem Škocjanu, mimo Malega naravnega mostu, čez Velikega, nato pa desno in po krožni poti nazaj. Pot iz Rakovega Škocjana nadaljujemo proti Zelšam, pred vasjo pa zavijemo desno in se mimo cerkve sv. Volbenka peljemo do Dolenje vasi. V Dolenji vasi pri gasilnem domu zavijemo desno čez mostiček in nazaj do Dolenjega Jezera. Pot je dolga 29 kilometrov, skozi Rakov Škocjan razgibana, sicer pa položna.

Na poti se peljete mimo bruhalnika Suhadolice, Velike in Male Karlovice, Velikega in Malega naravnega mosta, Zelške cerkve in številnih razglednih točk.
