Itinerary description

This track is the route of the E4 European Long Distance Trail from Veliko Gradiste to Monsa in Serbia based on Map 7 and 8 of "Rambling through Serbia at a slow pace" a booklet published by Planinarski Savez Srbije (PSS), the Serbian Mountain Association. While the track is close to the trail described in the booklet, I cannot guarantee it is the exact route or indeed the best, all I can say is that I successfully walked it in March 2018. More details of my trip can be found in my blog johnpone4serbia.blogspot.com.
This part of the E4 forms a big "U" shape starting and finishing at the Danube and taking you into the Homolje mountains with monasteries, caves and rivers rising out of the ground on route, together with several mountains and a huge copper mine.
Note that at the Waypoint marked "No path" I was struggling through the woods and anyone repeating this section may want to select a different route.
This trail starts at the end of my previous walk https://www.wikiloc.com/hiking-trails/serbia-e4-european-long-distance-trail-from-osipaonica-to-veliko-gradiste-20391729. The following trail is https://www.wikiloc.com/hiking-trails/serbia-e4-long-distance-european-trail-from-monsa-to-vratna-monastery-24609887.
I subsequently found a similar route online https://pss.rs/terenipp/homoljska-transverzala/
