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 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!!!

A little too man-made, all paths have rocks placed if not paved, bathrooms and buildings and a cafe along the route with lots of traffic but beautiful mountain and lake views, fairly easy hike unless you go up to the second lake, that’s where it gets more challenging

rained the second half. Not crazy about the amount of road walking, not busy, but it covers like 20% - amazing hike around the 3 lakes, morskie oko trail was decent but too easy.
