Equestrian trail number 4 spreads over mostly flat terrain. The first, shorter section leads along the edge of the narrow valley of the Pačetina riverbed, while the rest of the trail passes entirely through the river Krapinica valley, through which valley also pass the highway A2 and the railway line. This trail connects the boarding house Vuglec Breg in the village of Škaričevo and excursion site Agroturizam Kos in the village of Brezovo, over the villages of Vidovec Krapinski, Gornja Pačetina and Sveti Križ Začretje. The trail leads mostly towards south.

The trail begins at the boarding house Vuglec Breg and leads down the forest road around half a kilometer to the north until it reaches the road Škaričevo and follows it in the north direction. After leaving the first group of houses, the trail turns to the macadam road and further towards north, passes through a hilly, forested region next to the two smaller ponds up to the valley of the Petrovčanka riverbed. At that point, the trail suddenly turns to the southeast, following first the direction of Petrovčanka riverbed and, after the place where the said river discharges into the river of Pačetina, the trail continues along the edge of the Pačetina riverbed valley up to the village of Gornja Pačetina. That section of the trail is situated at the edge of a large, forest, hilly area and in the more southern part, there are large meadows and fields. In the village of Gornja Pačetina, the trail reaches the road and turns to the east through the hamlets of Gornja Pačetina, until crossing the railway in the river Krapinica valley, next to the highway A2 and through the fields, crossing the river several times, up to the village of Sveti Križ Začretje. In the village of Sveti Križ Začretje, the trail turns to southeast following the flow of the Krapinica river, and then turns to the south, following the canals along the Krapinica riverside and the highway, passing over the several canals. At some point, in line with the village of Brezovo, situated on the east side of the highway, the trail turns to the east up to the endpoint, the excursion site Agroturizam Kos in the village of Brezovo.
