Safety information

  • Be aware of the mine field left of the trail towards Ruište.
  • No water source from the trailhead to Orlinka all the way to Ruište.
  • Trail is overgrown, badly maintained and therefor not always easy to find.
  • Due to fires the trail blazers disappeared. I had to descend to the road, because I could not find the path to Orlinka.

Start
