If your physical condition or shortage of time don’t allow you to take trips down the largest valleys and up the tallest peaks of the Tatras, it is worth going to the smaller and no less interesting forest valleys situated just above the centre of Zakopane. A small path known as Ścieżka pod Reglami (path under the forest valleys) will take you from the famous Wielka Krokiew ski jump to the Białego Valley. It is a very narrow canyon carved in dolomite rocks, in which there is a trail path built from wooden logs. From the upper part of the valley, take the black trail known as Ścieżka nad Reglami (path over forest valleys) to the top of the Sarnia Skała mountain, where you can admire a breathtaking view of the Giewont mountain. Follow the same trail to descend to the Strążyska Valley, where, after following the yellow signs, you will reach the picturesque Siklawica waterfall. To return, take the red trail down the valley towards Zakopane.
