Detailed route description:

Žiarska Chata situated in the middle part of the valley of Žiarska Dolina is the only alpine cottage in the West Tatras. It is very often visited by tourists as it is a starting point for different hikes up to Mt Baníkovo and Mt Baranec. It is attractive for families with children, seniors and less experienced tourists, as well as cyclists. The trail to the valley of Žiarska Dolina starts at the mouth of the valley where there is a paid parking place. The whole trail runs along an asphald road with a possibility to turn onto an old tourist trail through the forest. A pleasant, smooth climb is complemented with the cave of Medvedia Štôlňa, especially attractive to children.

Availability and parking:

Parking is available at the mouth of the valley of Žiarska Dolina for some fee. Guests staying in the cottage are allowed to drive their cars to the cottage to park their car on a car park. 

Good accessibility is also ensured by local bus transport from Liptovský Mikuláš. The final bus stop is located approximately 400 m from the trail´s starting point.

At the beginning of the trail there is a cottage Kožiar offering drinks and food. Žiarska Chata cottage itself also offers background for its visitors.
