Our main idea was to create a course which passes the four most famous and outstanding Gorce summits: Lubań, Turbacz, Kudłoń and Gorc. From the 2017 edition we have added Mogielica – the highest summit of the next mountain range –  Beskid Wyspowy. By finishing Gorce Ultra-Trail® you will have symbolically completed the whole of the Gorce mountains. And now the Beskid Wyspowy as well 🙂

Gorce Ultra-Trail®  102 km

The route starts from the center of Ochotnica Dolna, taking the asphalt road slightly down towards Tylmanowa. At Ligasy village it takes the unmarked road to Makowica hill, the green marked tourist trail to Lubań, where the course changes trail and follows the red signs through Przełęcz Knurowską until reaching Turbacz. Then it takes the yellow trail to Miejski Wierch and the black trail to Bukowina Obidowska. Returning to the green trail it then runs down to Obidowa and has a short but steady uphill to the Stare Wierchy mountain hut. Then the route turns right, following the red signs towards Turbacz, up to the Czoło Turbacza mountain pasture, where it changes to the yellow trail and then runs down to the Borek Pass, uphill to Kudłoń and then down again (still following the yellow signs and the nature footpath afterwards) to Rzeki. After the water station the route turns left towards the Przysłop pass, and continues along the yellow trail through Jasień to Mogielica. Following that it switches from the yellow train to the green trail and goes through Wyrębiska village and Szczawa to the last refreshment point. The route then takes the black trail to Nowa Polana glade, where it switches to the blue trail. Soon afterwards there is a left turn and after some uphill the route reaches the top of Gorc. From the top, the route turns left, the signs change to green and goes down into the centre of Ochotnica Dolna (with an unmarked path at the end).
