Although the trail is a bit longer, 21 km, it is not difficult and it is also suitable for less ready cyclists, especially since it is outside the roads.
At the very beginning it is passing along the fences surrounded by dry stone walls.
One of the first major motifs is certainly the protected ornithological reserve - the freshwater lake Veliko Blato, in the area of which over 160 species of birds have been recorded that are either migrating or constantly staying in the area (feeding and nesting). It is interesting that until recently, the sheep shelters in the area of Povljana were covered with reeds which the locals cut in the area of the lake.
We continue along the edge of the lake and soon come to the Vlašići - Dinjiška road. At the junction with the road, the trail runs to the left, but if you continue to the right, you can reach the centre of one of the oldest places on the island - Vlašići.
The trail continues along the asphalt road along the remains of the saltpans near Dinjiška and the Sveti Bartul location. All this time on the left we have a view of the Veliki Blato.
We will soon reach an old water pump and then the lake Malo Blato (also a protected bird reserve).The area of Malo Blato was used for growing cereals because the regular pattern channels (at right angles), were discovered and even now there are ruins of a mill in the western part of the lake.
We continue towards Stara Vas, along a slight descent into the field and further towards Vrčići. On the way back we pass again along Malo blato and along the dry stone walls we continue to the road Povljana – Dinjiška, and then on the macadam road to the end of the trail, with an unavoidable view of the entire surrounding area.
