Velika Paklenica is very crowded in peak season. Rock climbing is permitted. Mala Paklenica is relatively empty, wilder, narrower, no climbing is permitted. If there is extremely heavy rain or in the spring when snows are melting it is not passable due to water flooding the trail in Mala Paklenica.

Did this route several times. Can start at beginning of Mala Paklenica in Seline or at beginning of Velika Paklenica out of Starigrad. There are parking lots at both entrances. If you come without a car, add an additional distance from bus stops in Seline or Starigrad. In that case you also do not have to loop back fully, as you do not have to pick up your car in the other entrance's parking lot, just go straight down towards the main road and get to the closest bus stop.
