Perhaps every nation has its own hero. In Slovakia, he is a rebel bandit who took from the rich and gave to the poor. According to historical sources, he was born in the small village of Terchová in Malá Fatra. Yes, we are talking about Juraj Jánošík. Let's take a walk where he used to walk.

Juraj Janosik

We will start our journey at the church of St. Cyril and Methodius in Janošík's bir­thplace (Terchová). We continue along the Vratňany road along which we pass a nearby ridge with a seven and a half meter metal (stainless steel) statue of a famous robber.

The trail continues to climb sharply, and with the help of stairs and a chain, we discover other amazing views of the region.

Sokolie

After a steep climb we come to the signpost Malé nocľahy, here we have a small snack and then continue along the yellow sign further to the top of Sokolie

Baraniarky

We continue along a narrow path through the forest along the yellow sign to the grassy saddle Príslop. From here we climb through the forest along the blue mark to the top of Baraniarka (1270m)

Rye - Kraviarske

We continue along a narrow ridge, which we leave briefly in Malý sedlo. From there we ascend to the top of Žitná (1,265 m) and descend again this time to the Great Saddle. We ascend again through the grassy open ridge to the highest peak of the entire Kraviarke side ridge (1,361 m). Now we have a view of the breathtaking panoramas of Malá Fatra.

Farewell

The last views from Kravirský peak and we descend into the deep saddle Za Kraviarskym. We continue along the green narrow path in the undergrowth of kneeling, which gradually turns into a coniferous forest leading to the crossroads „Stará dolina“ further along the road to the cottage Vrátná. This is where our journey ends. The bus will take us back to Terchová.

Farewell
