nr1t  Suggestion no. 1: bicycle trip along a red trail


For persistent bikers, we suggest a tour around the whole commune along the red trail (49.1 km) or, in a “recreational” variant, covering a half of the distance. The trip can start in the centre of Trzebinia and, depending on your liking, you can choose a north way (a route goes through plains and woods) or a south way (more asphalt, but charming rest by the Chechło reservoir and the Puszcza Dulowska forest for dessert).


“North” way: the route starts in a car park opposite the “Balaton” reservoir. The trail rarely meets asphalt, and if so, it goes through side roads. The route goes from the centre of Trzebinia through Wodna to Siersza i Czyżówka, and further, through Płoki, Psary and Karniowice, leads to the vicinity of a forester’s lodge in Dulowa*. From Dulowa, you can go back to the city centre along Krakowska street or – avoiding asphalt and traffic – go along Św. Floriana street towards a school and, following an orange hiking trail marking, make a turn to Spacery street (here, opposite a cemetery, there is an original Karniowice mound). In the vicinity of the park-palace complex in Młoszowa, the orange trail joins a linking black trail, and together they leads towards Wzgórze. We suggest you should go along the black trail near Trzebinia’s cemetery, and then return to ‘Balaton along a blue trail.


* Further, the red trail crosses Krakowska street and leads to the Puszcza Dulowska forest.  


Places particularly worth seeing:

  • the “Balaton” reservoir
  • the “Podbuczyna” ecological area
  • the Cisowe Skały rock formation in Czyżówka
  • the shrine to the Virgin Mary in Płoki
  • the Bialny Dół hill in Psary
  • the Karniowice sinter (a site in the Wyrąb forest in Karniowice)


“South” way: the route starts near a railway station in Trzebinia. Almost the half of the trail is comprised of asphalt roads, but they are of low traffic density. The trail passes the shrine to the Virgin Mary of Fatima towards the Chechło reservoir and then through side roads through Piła Kościelecka to Bolęcin. Later on, it turns along the commune’s border and joins a so-called Droga Alwerska road in the Puszcza Dulowska forest. We suggest you should follow a red trail marking for some time and then take a turn to the Linia Średnia, according to blue trail marking and to a forest nature path that leads through the Puszcza Dulowska forest*. The blue trail goes further through forests and turns towards the Chechło reservoir, but those who do not plan to rest by the water can follow the blue trail and after reaching asphalt (Słowackiego street), turn right and reach a railroad. Take the first turn to the left after a grade crossing, and you will go back to the railway station in Trzebinia.


* The red trail goes further along Droga Alwerska road, crosses Krakowska street and leads to Karniowice and Psary.


Places particularly worth seeing:

  • the shrine to the Virgin Mary of Fatima
  • the Chechło reservoir
  • the Triassic rock in Bolęcin
  • the Puszcza Dulowska forest


nr2t  Suggestion no. 2: hiking along a green trail from Myślachowice to Płoki


A route for people keen on a daylong trip far away from roads and houses along a trail that goes initially through meadows and then through forests full of raspberries, blackberries and mushrooms  and that leads to the picturesque rock formation of Cisowe Skały and a beautiful beech forest near Czyżówka. From there, the trail goes to the valley of a strongly twisting Kozi Bród river and, along its banks, leads to the shrine in Płoki.


How to get to Myślachowice:

- from a railway station in Trzebinia or from the Trzebinia-Mały Rynek stop: by bus no. 41 – the route and departure time are available on the ZKKM website

- from the Trzebinia-Mały Rynek stop: by minibus (private carriers)

Return from Płoki to Trzebinia:

- by bus no. 41 or by minibus.


Places particularly worth seeing:

  • the Cisowe Skały rock formation
  • the Kozi Bród river
  • the shrine to the Virgin Mary in Płoki


nr3t  Suggestion no. 3: photo fan trip along an orange trail from Młoszowa


A route of a minimal difficulty, but it can be slightly too long for children. It goes from the park-palace complex in Młoszowa through Wzgórze towards the “Ostra Góra” reserve, and then it leads through the Bialny Dół hill in Psary and the Karniowice sinter towards the Karniowice mound, from where it leads back to Młoszowa. This route would be especially interesting for enthusiasts of photography, because it starts near the object of the boldest manipulation of history in the area of Trzebinia, which happened when Kajetan Forkiewicz built a fake medieval castle in Młoszowa. The castle has been rebuilt many times, and it has got a very original appearance and atmosphere. The palace is surrounded by a large park, which is willingly visited by birds and small animals, and where there is a rich blossom of every spring. An equally interesting place to take pictures is the area of the “Ostra Góra” natural reserve, where fancifully twisted beeches neighbour on the remains of mysterious buildings called “a sheep shed”. Another kind of attraction is the Bialny Dół hill, which is – due to its marvellous panorama and extraordinary abundance of flora – justly considered one of the most spectacular places in Trzebinia when it comes to the beauty of nature.


How to get to Młoszowa:

- from a railway station in Trzebinia or from the Trzebinia-Słowackiego stop: by bus no. 15

Return from Młoszowa to Trzebinia: by bus no. 15 or by minibus.


Places particularly worth seeing:

  • the park-palace complex in Młoszowa
  • the “Ostra Góra” natural reserve
  • the Bialny Dół hill
  • the Karniowice sinter
