We start at the designated place and ride along back alleys so we can avoid heavy traffic. We pass the settlement Kožle and get to village Dolno Nerezi, just at the West edge of Skopje.
From there we ride on a local village road, on the right side of Treska River, and pass the fields and houses of the villages Krušopek, Grčec and Šiševo. From Šiševo on we move to a small dirt road going just along the Treska River. At moments the road gets very narrow due to the forest overgrowth, so we have to be careful not to get scratched or get stuck on a branch.
After this short adventure through the bushes, we get to the Canyon Matka. We cross a bridge and get on the main road. There we stop to see the Monastery of Holy Mother of God, a 14th century church and monastery. Then we continue to ride to the dam, and the Matka accumulation lake. We end at the church of St. Andreja, and the accumulation lake Matka. There, at the lake, there is a restaurant where we can sit and have a break. From that point, there are walking paths and boat tours at availability if you want to go.
