Turbacz (1310 m a.m.s.l.) is the highest peak of the Gorce Mountains, a mountain range located in southern Lesser Poland, and belong to the Beskid Mountains.
To the Turbacz we decided to go from the Nowy Targ, Kowaniec street. From this point leads to the summit of the mountain trails yellow and green, both of these routes connect to the blue trail in a place called Wisielakówka, from where it is very close to the shelter PTTK Turbacz. If we turn the left next to shelter PTTK Turbacz walking to red trail around 10 min later we reach the top of the Turbacz mountain.
