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.
