Detailed route description

It is undemanding hiking trail starting at the cable car valley station in the resort of  Malinô Brdo also called Hrabovo. There are no problems with parking as well as to find food facilities in the locality. Also a rope course Tarzania is situated here as well as a water reservoir with a possibility to rent a boat. The trail starts at the yellow marker that is leading to the local Calvary and continuing onto the well-known meadows of Vlkolínske Lúky where you can admire the majestic rock formations and the surrounding mountains. A slight climb will lead us to the jewel of the entire region protected by UNESCO – Vlkolínec. This historical area is a sought-after place for tourists from around the world. We are returning back along the same trail to the car park in Hrabovo.
