    – to reach the top of Okole Mt. you should turn into the blue trail at the place where the climb to the highest point of the track starts (there is a micro meadow, you can see a picture of this place below)

Single track – from the perspective of a professional cyclist


  • PROS
    – super track, great pleasure. Quite demanding descends! (Marcin)
    – the greatest attraction is the viewing point with a viewing terrace at the top of Okole Mt.
    – track Okole is a single track at the highest elevation in the Katshava Mountains
  • CONS
    – it is not recommended for a family trip with little children (track “Gozdno 1” would be better for a start), unless your children like climbs :-)
    – I guess track “Okole Zjazd” is prepared for advanced cyclists, for whom 10km-long track is too short, the short descend forces the long climb along the track which you already rode a while ago
