From Savudrija the trail passes by Umag and along footpaths to Pazin and then to Rabac, from where the trail climbs up Učka. To see small, picturesque, scattered little towns such as Motovun and Grožnjan lit by the morning sun peeking out from the misty valleys like enchanted castles is a joy for hikers who will be inspired for many years after they return from a long walk like this on the CLDT. From Učka the trail bypasses Rijeka and via Fužine and Vratnik it climbs to Zavižan, and the famous mountain lodge and meteorological station. This is a demanding part with serious mountains where one should be more cautious, particularly because of the weather conditions and water supplies. The average hiker will walk this part of section C in 14 days.
Premužić’s Trail has the cult status of all Croatia’s mountains and walking it is not only a pleasure but an obligation. It winds through the most attractive corners of the mystical Velebit mountain, and where another national park in the chain – the Northern Velebit National Park is found, after which comes the Paklenica National Park where hikers come across new challenges. This part of section is quite demanding – there is less water, fewer supply points, certain skills are needed, but by its attractiveness it is perhaps the richest, even more so as it ends at the highest peak of the Republic of Croatia – Sinjal (1,830 m). This part of section C is not recommended for inexperienced hikers to start walking. The average hiker will walk it in 10 days.
From the highest peak of the Republic of Croatia the trail turns towards the mountains Svilaja, Mali Kozjak and Mosor, after which it descends to Omiš. Omiška Dinara is a prelude to Biokovo, which will be a great challenge for hikers, however, the breath-taking views will provide them with a respite. Biokovo will take hikers southwards all the way to Ploče, and the mouth of the Neretva River from where the trail goes to Pelješac, the winegrowing region full of history. The very end of the CLDT is reserved for Dubrovnik, and Srđ, which like a guard watches over the city. Attractiveness is guaranteed. The CLDT ends at the southernmost point of Croatian – Prevlaka, 2,109 km from the starting point, and which the average hiker can cover in 100 days. The average hiker can spend a full 20 days on this last part of section C though.
