Detailed route description

“Prosiecka a Kvačianska dolina” Nature Trail (Prosiecka and Kvačianska valleys) Prosiecka and Kvačianska valleys are the most visited localities in the region of Liptov in summer. For their undemanding terrain, they are very popular with families having kids. Except for the mills Oblazy, a waterfall and wooden observation decks, the hiking trail is complemented by a nature trail. The trail has 12 stops with information boards consisting of geographical, biological and historical data of the amazing locality.
