It is one of the most demanding connection roads as its longest part is a large ascent. Of course, if you are heading from Vrbovsko towards Ravna Gora. The story is completely different in the opposite direction. However, regardless the ascent, this part of Karolina road can be experienced in a different way only if riding a bike.

Just before the castle, the most recognized symbol of Stara Sušica, the ascent becomes easier. There are another 7 km of mostly easy ascent and just before the end an easy descend to the centre of Ravna Gora.
