Beskid Mountains Cycling Trail

Types of trails: Cycle
Length of trail: 67,4

Total length of the trail: 68.2 km

Difficulty: easy

This trail is an old and no longer maintained cycling route that crosses the Gorce Mountains, Island Beskids and Łososina Range and connects Rabka-Zdrój with Nowy Sącz. The signage is unfortunately weather-worn and rudimentary, but the concept and routing of the trail is still so attractive that it’s worth revisiting and riding it according to gpx (recommended). Between Rabka and Mszana Dolna the trail is most suitable for gravel/mtb bikes, while from Mszana to Nowy Sącz you can easily treat it as a classic road trail, which offers the simplest possible connection of the VeloRaba and VeloDunajec/EV11
routes. In Limanowa the trail crosses a park and the new recreation centre  that currently is under construction. The market square and the Regional Museum are also worth visiting. The route is definitely for advanced cyclists, mainly because of the steep inclines and riding alongside the general traffic, but you will be rewarded this effort with fantastic views in the passes. The area around Rabka can be reached by train (the station in Chabówka); the station in Nowy Sącz can be reached by the Carpathian Bicycle Trail – Łososina variant.
