Detailed route description

Babky (1566 m above sea level) is part of the Western Tatras, while the hike to them is not among the most demanding, but it is definitely one of the most beautiful. Especially the views of Liptov are worth it.

You start the hike to Babky at the beginning of the Bobrovecká valley, specifically in the Bobrovecká vápenica area, where free parking is available. The route follows the blue sign next to the calvary along the weighbridge through the Pod Babkami intersection to the Chata pod Náružím, where you can have refreshments. The route continues along the blue sign to Pod Babkami, from where you take the green sign to Babky. Grandmothers have a unique view. During the route, we can stop at a partisan bunker. This is a cave with photos and a description where the guerrillas were hiding.

Availability and parking options

There is a free parking lot with sufficient capacity right at the starting point of the route in the location of Bobrovecká vápenica.

The bus stop is about a 2.5 km walk from Bobrovecka limestone at the intersection with the village of Jalovec, which can be reached by suburban line from Liptovský Mikuláš.
