Currently TrailBK consists of five trails: TBK Jedna, TBK Dva, TBK Tri, Slalomka, and Baník. Each of these trails offers a different level of difficulty, while most obstacles are bypassable or can be tackled at a lower speed, depending on the technical skill of the rider. A prerequisite is at least some experience with mountain bike riding. The trails are marked with a yellow C sign, while in maps and info-boards we mark the trails following the IMBA system, based on their difficulty.
Please do not overestimate your capabilities and use the necessary safety gear, like helmet, pads, and so on.
Trail TBK Jedna is initial, and the highest elevated part of the TrailBK. It starts under Biely Kríž. This part leads throught undemanding terrain with one light climb and is therefore also suitable for beginners and as a warm-up trail. It has a "pumtrack" character and "flow", allowing higher speed with good technique. It ends with an asphalt road crossing, followed by climb to the other parts of the trail.
Difficulty / Marking based on IMBA Classification:lEasy

with a smooth pass at a lower speed

This is the second branch of the trail leading from the top of Piesky (447m). It is distinguished by its variety of terrain and obstacles. Trail is divided to a medium and difficult portion. It examines both the rider's fitness and technical skills. Here we have natural rock gardens but also wooden bridges, drops and various jumps and switchbacks. TBK Tri ends at the old stone quarry in the Vajnorská Valley, from where it is possible to move to the Jurava cycling trail or use the access road back to trails.
