The bike routes are designated bike routes on existing forest and public roads. They can also be used as walkways. The trails are marked within a network of bicycle routes in western Serbia. The routes are designed, marked and equiped in cooperation with the RDA Zlatibor and STC Bajina Bašta. One route is marked within UNDP/GEF grant. There is a printed map of Western Serbia biking routes – Zlatibor – Mokra Gora – Tara.
The maps are also available at www.mapa.iz.rs.
