Both branches of the interesting nature trail start in the picturesque village Dolný Jelenec near the memorial to outstanding Slovak forester J. D. Matejovie. The first route has 14 stops – it goes through the Veľká Fatra National Park to Staré Hory and is 9.5 km long. In 2011 the second branch of the trail was opened; it has 12.5 km and 6 stops and it crosses the Starohorské Mountains around the restored bunker Mor ho! to Špania Dolina. It offers its visitors beautiful open views of the Low Tatra, Veľká Fatra and Kremnické Mountains. It is suitable for family hikes and you can get there on foot, by bike or on cross-country skis in the winter.
