The route starts in the village of Kalameny and continues past the Kalameny lake (thermal spring), which is used for public bathing all year round. It is parallel to the yellow and, from the junction Sedlo pod Kráľová, to the red tourist sign. The route with a permanent climb leads largely outside the forest, which can be strenuous on sunny summer days. A 7 m high metal ladder and a bridge lead to the platform with the castle. There are warnings in the terrain: entry into the Liptovský Castle area is possible only at your own risk and for persons under 14 only accompanied by adults.
With good visibility, the hill and the castle offer views as far as Orava with Baba Hora, the Liptovská Basin with the Liptovská Mara reservoir, the Low Tatras and Veľký Choč (1,609 m above sea level). The castle area is a national cultural monument. The small remains of the castle (exposed foundations of the walls), which are being preserved by the local civic association Castrum Liptov, are freely accessible to the public.
