Lyžiarske stredisko Žiarce – Pod kameňolomom – Jelie – Jelšie – Kamenná Porúbka – Lyžiarske stredisko Žiarce
The nature trail in the municipality of Pavčina Lehota created by members of the tourism association Združenie cestovného ruchu Pavčina Lehota is a place where you can spend a really pleasant day. The trail itself is not only about tourism, but also about beautiful panoramas from an observation tower, adrenaline on the bobsleigh track in the resort Žiarce, as well as about attractions listed on 11 boards that border this nature trail. Each of them contains information about the surrounding fauna and flora.
The trail runs mainly across meadows and former pastures and with a length of less than 10km and only 100m elevation, it is suitable for families with children or less savvy tourists. The trail is also suitable for cycling, and in winter it turns into a maintained cross-country trail.
The village of Pavčina Lehota is accessible by bus circulating regularly from Liptovský Mikuláš. You can also use ski buses and bike buses running through the neighbouring village of Demänovská Dolina either in winter or summer. There is a bus stop only a few hundred meters from Pavčina Lehota. A free spacious parking lot is found at the resort Žiarce at the beginning/end of the trail. Parking is also available in the village.
The route offers virtually no shade, so it is necessary to have plenty of water with you and some snack. At the beginning/end of the route, there is a buffet in the resort of Žiarce, and accommodation and food facilities are also available in the village of Pavčina Lehota.
