Trail of Life Bílé Karpaty

Mountain bike circuits and natural single trails for mountain bikers that are located in the vicinity of Bílé Karpaty mountain range. Lučina recreation resort with a large-capacity parking place, a pumptrack and a small skills centre is the point of departure. Local community of bike riders, municipalities of the Strážnice and Horňácko regions together with support from South Moravian Region authorities and Lesy ČR strive to create great conditions for mountain bikers of all skill levels and thus support tourism in the area.

Motto
Do you need to get lost? From the hustle and bustle of your city, stress at work, or a landslide of bad news? Well, then you are coming to the right place. You are in the foothills of Bílé Karpaty mountain range, welcome at Trail of Life.

It is a compact network of paths / trails for mountain bikes. They include paths through forests and vast meadows of Bílé Karpaty. Our trails start and end at the information centre in Lučina recreation resort. This means that they are actually marked circuits for mountain bikers that partially take advantage of existing tourist paths and connect into one-way single trails intended for cyclists only. Visitors are obliged to obey regulations of TofL, stick to the Code of Mountain Bikers, and respect all users while riding shared roads and paths. 

Trail of Life offers five circuits that have total length of 130km. The routes are marked, and often run simultaneously along classic tourist paths. We carefully selected them to provide you with great fun on your mountain bike. But do not expect shaped and smooth surfaces and one-way single trails; most often will you ride a forest road, sometimes a narrow path. The terrain and the fact that paths often wind among trees make sure that you will enjoy your ride. Be prepared for plentiful jumps, natural drops and a torso of a fortification wall created a possibility of a wallride on one of our trails, too. But what is more - you can be looking forward to roots, soft soil, and a deal of mud, if it starts to rain.
