Skrzyczne is a mountain in southern Poland, close to the town of Szczyrk. It is the highest mountain of the Silesian Beskids.
Expedition to Skrzyczne we started from Szczyrk. It is a small tourist town in the Silesian voivodeship.
plan of our trip
differences in the heights
a bridge over the stream
After parking the car in the center of the village along the street Beskidzka, we walked across the bridge towards the street Leśna, where the trail begins green.
entrance to the forest
somewhere at the beginning of the way
Then we walked in the forest, the path was uphill all the time, the way in time became quite steep, so it cost us a lot of effort.

After about 50 minutes at an altitude of 862 m above sea level, we achieved peak Bacyrek (Pod Lanckoroną), where trails red and green are crossed and together lead towards the top Skrzyczne ,signpost shows still 1:40 hour to up.

At the top there is also a shelter PTTK Skrzyczne, where tourists can stay overnight and eat something good after a hard expedition or sit outside on benches and rest just like we did.

the beginning descent down
After a rest we went back, all the while the blue trail down to Szczyrk. Along the way we passed a strange tree at, which of course we took a picture. The blue trail leads straight to the Myśliwska street where we turned right towards center and after a few minutes we got to our car, all the way down took about 1.5 hours.
