Single tracks Ostrzyca, Pod Ostrzycą and Zielonki

Single tracks around Ostrzyca – the easiest routes, also recommended for families with children under the most famous extinct volcano.


  • all three routes are very close to each other, so you can easily drive them during one trip, starting in the same parking lot
  • length of routes:
    – single track “Ostrzyca” – 4.1 km
    – single track “Pod Ostrzycą” – 3.9 km
    – single track “Zielonki” – approx. 5.1 km
  • elevation:
    – single track “Ostrzyca” – 87 m up and 118 m down
    – single track “Pod Ostrzycą” – 70 m
    – single track “Zielonki” -74 m
  • “Pod Ostrzycą” and “Zielonki” are, next to the single tracks “Dwa Wąwozy” and “Pod Grzybkami”, the easiest of the Kaczawski single tracks – forest cycling routes
  • “Pod Ostrzycą” is actually an easy uphill trail to start riding both other singles.
  • “Zielonki” does not have any steep sections, it is suitable for beginners, ideal for children
  • “Ostrzyca” is a slightly more difficult route – with a steeper climb and several technical obstacles (drops, tables, rollers) – most of them you can easily bypass
  • driving along the “Ostrzyca” route you can go up to the stairs leading to the top of Ostrzyca – the entrance to the top is not possible by bike, it should be left at the benches at the beginning of the stairs (of course, we recommend attaching bicycles)
  • as a starting point you have a choice of two forest parking lots – one with trail maps, the other (located higher) has a picnic area, a covered shelter, toilets and a station for self-repair of the bike
  • GPX map of the “Ostrzyca” route – available from the level of cycling applications
  • GPX map of the “Pod Ostrzycą” route – available from the level of cycling applications
  • GPX map of the “Zielonka” route – available from the level of cycling applications
