wonderful hike even if Mount Giewont was forbidden access to the summit. This is due to the accidental death in July of 5 hikers affected by lightning. the hike is very steep and difficult for novices. The show at the top is beautiful. I made a variant with another summit that reaches 2000 meters above sea level. I put 6 hours in total with meal break. On arrival we find a taxi very easily to return to the starting point

Beautiful trail! But also very hard! We are fit people and even we were totally done at the end of the day. The views and beautiful nature you get to see along the trail and from the top totally pay for that though! Make sure your hiking shoes have enough cushion. 4 out 5 stars purely because the whole entire trail from bottom to top is covered in rocks which makes it very hard wears on your knees and back especially while going down!

difficult, but worth it

I came from the Kuznice side, and then after summiting Giewont, went along the ridge to Kasprowy Wierch. Fairly easy hiking in the beginning and middle. It’s a nice rock path all the way up, and then the last kilometer is pretty steep. The view at the top gives you a gorgeous look at Zakopane on the left, which you don’t see at all along the hike I did, as well as the high mountains of the park to your right.

I hiked this trail in mid July, and there were SO MANY PEOPLE on it! Regardless, it was absolutely stunning. At that time of year, it is accessible to anyone of any skill level. I will note, however, that the last mile or so up to the peak is quite tricky to navigate. For that portion, I would advise good shoes and physical fitness!

Absolutely love this trail! Disclaimer, do not attempt this trail if you aren’t looking for a good workout. Most of it is quite steep and very rocky. This was my favorite trail in tatra. Breathtaking views of the mountains and forestry. The hike begins at a trail through the woods made of large rocks as steps alongside a stream. At the end of the woods, the trail opens up to an incredible view all along the remaining path to the summit, with offtrail opportunities for rock climbing. (This probably isn’t safe but we did it anyway). Saw some goats, small wildflowers, and a bit of snow at the top. On the other side, lovely views on the rocky path back down into the valley. It rained on our way down, and the rocks became very slippery. Would recommend climbing stick for the descent. Overall, a good workout and breathtaking views.
