This is a short route, but recommended to everyone that is around. You follow the signs for the highway; but the idea is just to climb up the twisty road and take a superb look over the coast and islands; also a great road to ride in the sunset!
This is one of the fastest routes along Croatia; the road is wide open, great to speed up a bit without getting in to dangerous. Police is almost always present in Gracac city, so be careful. Starting from Plitvice National park, you can stop in Knin and take a look from the old fortres, pass the Pe...
Linking the D8 Coastal Road to Plitvice Lakes the D25 is a treat to ride. Leaving Karlobag you climb up in to the mountains with pleasant views out to sea. After the Velibit Park you lose sight of the sea and head inland winding down through Tree Lined mountain sides to Gospic.
Spend a night by Satorsko lake is a great experience, especially when it's in the beginning of may, it's really cold (some snow) and it's little bit scary around (of course you talking about bears all the time) :-) All of the road on the map is on gravel. Take care of shepherd dogs.
Start from Karlobag: from sea to 935 meters in 17 km: 8 nice hairpins. Then very nice undulating road thru Gospic until Gracac. Good straights, wide road. After Gracac go down to canyon road. Extreme scenery, narrow but good road, completely deserted, like UTAH. We loved every yard of it.
