“Stunning view from the Peljasic peninsula's highest point.”— Nick Wilder
From the summit, you can see Hvar, Korcula, the mainland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and even Montenegro in the distance.
You could also start this run with the Bilopolje Trail, which is very similar. Another option is the Orebic to Sveti Ilija Hut, but it is much looser and steeper and not recommended as an ascent.
Next, pass a trail on the left which goes to the Piscet lookout. The trail then enters a lovely pine forest and gets much less steep. You're probably sweating buckets by now, so this is a really nice stretch. Enjoy this until you hit the Sveti Ilija hut.
From the hut, follow the red and white paint along rocks to the summit. Continue on along a ridge (slightly descending) to another great viewpoint to the east. From the summit, you get outstanding views of Hvar Island, Korcula, the mainland, and many other islands off in the distance. You can also see Bosnia and Herzegovina, and in the distance, peaks of Montenegro. If you're a runner visiting this area, do it!
