There are many places with benches, tables and barbecues, which are ideal for camping and picnics in warm summer days. After about one hour and a half walking, the macadam road reachesa large meadow, where there is a hunting boom and feed for animals, from there the route goes into the woods and becomes steeper, moving on the mountain ribs to the highest part of the mountain.

   In the steepest part you will see a turnout for "bypass route", which also leads to the hut. It is slightly longer, less steep and more attractive with the "royal well" - one refreshing oasis in the mountain.
