Begin your trip at the ruins of the Wronin castle in Czorsztyn. Follow the green trail taking you through the village, and then turn right in the upper part of Czorsztyn, following the signs of the blue trail. Go past the information point of the Pieniny National Park and continue along the open ridge of Majerz. At the Osice pass you will reach the road leading from Krośnica to Sromowce Wyżne, but the route continues to follow the trail signs all the way to the Trzy Kropce pass. Once there, go down the steep slope (red trail) below the rocks of Rabsztyn to Sromowce Wyżne-Kąty and the Dunajec river raft harbour. The trail then leads along the road to Sromowce Wyżne, and gets to the other bank of Dunajec across the low dam on the Sromowce Lake. Along the southern bank lies the road from Niedzica to the border with Slovakia, which will take you to the dam on the Czorsztyn Lake. The structure’s embankment is a whopping 56 m high, making Poland’s largest earth dam. The trail cuts across the bends of the road and takes you to the Dunajec castle. The impressively situated edifice dates back to the Middle Ages: the upper castle on the top of the hill is Gothic, while the larger castle situated below represents the Renaissance style. About 200 m from the castle there is a pier, where during the summer you can get a boat trip back to Czorsztyn.
