Educational route Mount Stołowa

Description

The "Mount Stołowa" route starts in Jaroszowiec and is about 4.5 km long. It is marked in blue  and begins by the chapel of Our Lady in Jaroszowiec. Its main value is the opportunity to see one of the wildest parts of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland - a group of limestone hills covered with beech forests with many rocks, caves, rock shelters, and  remains of excavations left by ore and stone mining. It is worth noting that the first of the hills of the educational route  - Maniakówka, is used as a ski slope with a ski lift in winter. Monadnocks encountered on the route form a picturesque maze of corridors. Other karst formations are noteworthy caves and shelters in the forms of wells, cracks and crevices, as well as the largest cave - Błotna (120 m in length) and the Lodowa cave (30 m in length). Artificial hollows left by stone excavation in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, are a valuable source of information about the distant geological past of the area, as they contain numerous fossils: ammonites, belemnites, brachiopods, molluscs, sponges, corals and sea urchins. The "Mount Stołowa" route crosses the yellow Desert Trail, the red Eagles’ Nest Trail (Szlak Orlich Gniazd) and the green and red cycling routes. The blue liverwort (Przylaszczkowy) cycling trail runs nearby. It is a good idea for visitors to wander away from any of the main routes  in order to walk along the educational route and spend some time getting acquainted with its attractions.
