Krościenko upon Dunajec - Dzwonkówka - Przehyba - Szczawnica

It is a part of the Kazimierz Sosnowski trail - the main one in the Beskidy Mountains (red). The route starts in Krościenko on the bridge on the Dunajec River. The route goes up towards Stajkowa, Groń and then to the Siodełko pass. Before you reach the forest, you come to the vantage point from which you can see Krościenko and Szczawnica. After reaching the Dzwonkówka summit you can enjoy a magnificent panorama of the Beskid Sądecki, the Dunajec Valleys, and the Tatra and Pieniny Mountains. From there, you can take the yellow trail and have an easy walk to Szczawnica. But going further along the red trail you can reach the pass and the Przysłop hamlet. Walking along the buttress of the Radziejowa Mountain Range and going through the top of Skałka, you finally reach Przehyba and the situated there shelter.
If you want to go from there to Szczawnica, the best choice is to walk along the blue trail, going past a forester's lodge. At the final stage of the route, the Sopotnicki stream, which creates nice cascades, runs along it.
