Bicycle Road

Bicycle Road

You can also get to know Verkiai Regional Park by cycling - there are paths and tracks that are integrated into the network of cycling tracks in Vilnius. A 5 km long asphalt bicycle path has been installed from the Santariškės roundabout, which runs on the left side of Žaliųjų ežerų Street, through Verkiai Forest to the intersection with Gulbinėlių Street. Next there is a special gravel pavement called the Pink Bicycle Track.
The beginning of the cycling route is the architectural ensemble of Verkiai Palace, which is more than two hundred years old. From the Verkiai Palace, driving along forest roads, you will soon reach the Geomorphological lakes reserve. In this area, small lakes are replaced by closed lakes, from which only swampy moors remain. Climbing the hill offers a view of Lake Alsas, and in the wilderness, descends to Gulbinų Street, which leads to Lake Balsys.
You will continue through the linden grove, the roads of the Green Lakes Landscape Reserve, and the shores of the largest and deepest lake in the park, Balsys.
It is a favourite place for vacationers. The eastern shore of Lake Balsys offers views of the roaring green water.
This is the case from the high levels of carbonates in the underground springs that feed the entire Green Lakes group. Interestingly, the Little Gulbinas Lake near Balsys is 20 meters higher, i.e., as if on a hill.
Another section of the asphalt cycle path is located in the southern part of Verkiai Regional Park Nuo Verkių str. along the Neris and ends near the Church of Trinapolis.
