In recent years mountain biking has become increasingly popular and can today be considered a mass activity. In addition to all the positive influence this form of recreation has on human health, it may also inflict a number of detrimental impacts on the environment; for this reason cycling in Slovenia is only permitted along maintained tracks and roads. One such scenic route in the Solèavsko District is the Panoramic Road which leads north from Solèava to Podolševa, before heading west under the Olševa ridge towards Matkov Kot and the lower end of the Logarska Dolina Valley.
This (carbonic) acid and iron rich stream, has its source some 50 metres below the Panoramic Road that runs between the Olševa ridge aand Solcava village. This stream's spring issues forth from a tectonic fault line that separates the Kamnik-Savinja Alps from the Karavanke range. It runs along one of the sheer ravines that interrupt the steep rock-faces that lie below Olševa and its potable waters are attributed with healing powers.
