We did during the winter and it was gorgeous, don’t forget the spikes for the boots.

Good trail for beginners with amazing scenic view. You’ll definitively have your wow moments. Best approach is to follow the green stripe/ black stripe mark towards Wielki Staw. Once there you can eat/drink at the mountain cabin. Cash only. Afterwards, you can easily take the blue stripe mark towards the Morskie Oko. Descend on red stripe. All this can take around 8 hours. Overcrowded and this can be a bit tiring for those used with wild, remote hiking trails. A lot of people in sandals, white snickers, slippers!!! What amazed me was to see parents and their 5-7 years old kids all wearing snickers?!! Dressed like going to the mall. Go there very early in the morning otherwise you won’t find a parking place. At Morskie Oko I saw people washing their feet in the lake while 10 meters away others were drinking from it thinking it is clean, untouched mountain water. Don’t expect any wild life, the route is just too overwhelmed by tourist in order for any animals to remain in its vicinity. Those with more hiking experience can go straight for Rysy peak. Challenging but rewarding hike. Amazing view towards SK and PL.

amazing and very challenging trail. Red line up, blue line down as suggested in previous reviews. the only addition I would make is the overall timing. it's more like 4-5 hours with breaks from start to finish. I'll add a picture of the local map to help future hikers.

The main trail from entrance to just before the pond is flat and easy. The walk up to the cave entrance is not bad, a little rocky that’s all. The cave temperature is 6 degrees and now it costs 4 zł per person. It’s a one way cave and in parts very narrow and slippery so be prepared. Don’t enter in shoes without grip and without a jacket/jumper. Not much to see inside however, when you exit the view is beautiful and because it’s a one way trail you must pass through the cave to see it. The trail recommend leaving it last but that makes no sense, if you want to see it or the beautiful valley view after, take the first turn towards the cave. You will rejoin the main path after. The pond is beautiful, a brief rocky hike, nothing too difficult. There is a side trail loop half way through, something with Krakow in the name, estimated to take 1h but be prepared for climbing with chains on slippery rocks. The walk over the rocks on this loop trail is beautiful, something different and more challenging from the main path.

Awesome trail! The beginning starts on a simple path heavily trafficked until you reach the turn off. Along the way you will find the entrance to cave for a small fee. The cave is cool, but requires some crouching or crawling and may be a bit flooded, prepare for wet shoes. At the exit of the cave, you can climb over the stairs to the right to a little area with a nice veiw. The stairs lead to a river, more simple path. We took an alternate route; if you continue straight to the middle path instead of turning left to loop back towards the beginning. Take this path through a wooded trail, it will dead end at a pond with a deck. The veiw and overall atmosphere here is absolutely pristine. The pond is surrounded by woods and overlooks the mountain peaks. So peaceful.

Amazing views, not very challenging. If you choose to take the path beside the big waterfall, be prepared for some steep snow (even in early June) to get over to the top. It looks more scary than it actually is, well worth it though, you’ll come out beside the great polish lake and can go left to reach the Dolina Piecu Stawow main point. Waterproof hiking boots are essential, there are many crossings covered with shallow running water. An absolute must see!

One of the most beautiful places I’ve seen! Love it! Recommended in any weather conditions as it’s always pretty and not too difficult to get to! If you have time and weather let’s you, try to see places around! There is so many great peaks you can get to and enjoy the view!!!

My favorite hike I’ve ever been on. I live in Colorado, USA so trust me it’s saying something. The terrain is extremely unforgivable. Rocks the whole way but you’re constantly rewarded with amazing views each step of the way. It’s just pristine. I found myself falling because I couldn’t stop staring all around me. If you’re an intermediate hiker with the right gear you have to take this peak on. I didn’t see the name that All Trails names this hike at all so you just have to look for the Czerwone Wierchy (Ciemniak) trail head signs. You can either start on the red trail and come down the green or vice versa. I’d say if you want to knock out the hardest part first start with the red. Very steep and rocks rocks rocks. If it’s rainy it will slow you down. I started with the green and came back down red and would probably do that again. Weather changed prettt quickly at the peak and I found myself in a cloud with some rain. There wasn’t crazy wind so it was manageable but it was a little scary rolling in. Enjoy.

One of the most beautiful hike I've been on!! Features a very nice loop that takes you around a lake, over a mountain, view of a amazing basin, and finishes with a nice trail in a canyon bottom. It's so awesome!

Beautiful mountains. Great hike.

Route begins in Koscieliska valley. The valley was very crowded since it is an easy walk and the location of many excursions. Once the red trail splits off and the first major climb starts this thins out to only a handful of hikers. The climb to Chuda Przelacka is quite steep and rocky, and affords beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. From there, you can continue the climb to the Czerwony Wierchy (Red Peaks). From Chuda Przelacka we descended via the green route to the Ornak hut. The first hour of the descent is steep through numerous rock formations and then enters a pine forest. At the Ornak hut the green route rejoins the Koscieliska valley and is a leisurely last descent back to the trailhead. The hut has a kitchen and food and drinks are available.
