Detailed route description

Mt Sivý Vrch is part of the Western Tatras and is reachable either from the locality of Huty or Bobrovec. It is one of the most difficult and even one of the most beautiful tours. Especially, the views of the regions Liptov and Orava are worth seeing. The tour up to Mt Sivý Vrch starts at the beginning of the valley of Bobrovecká Dolina, namely at the spot Bobrovecká Vápenina. You can park your car for free. The trail is going by the Calvary along a forest road up to the cottage of Chata pod Náružím where you can refresh yourselves. It continues to the saddleback of Predovratie and then up the Mt Sivý Vrch. You can get back along the same trace or your tour can be enriched with an ascent up the peak of Babky with a unique view and then you can continue by taking the original trail. On your way back we can stop at a partisan bunker with photographs and descriptions.

Availability and parking options

A bus stop is about 3 km away with direction to the locality of Bobrovecká Vápenina. Here you can find a spacious free car park.

Options for accommodation and meals
