BLUE: Hajnówka – Orzeszkowo – Topiło – Hajnówka | Puszcza Białowieska – przewodnik – Bialowieza Forest – guide

BLUE: Hajnówka – Orzeszkowo – Topiło – Hajnówka

The blue trail goes across various forest areas. In the first part of your trip you discover Leśna River Valley and four reserves. There is also Topiło village, beatifully situated at a small forest lake, where you may walk around an educational trail. After Topiło our route goes aside from the trail’s itinerary and reaches villages: Łozice and Olszyna, where you see the traditional wooden architecture and patures with an ancient fencing. In Orzeszkowo the route comes back to the trail’s itinerary.

The trail is a circle, most of its road is flat.  

Attention: On many maps the  trail’s part, between Orzeszkowo and Hajnówka, goes along a forest road which actually is not available due to a damaged bridge on Chwiszczej river. So remember to stick the main road or be ready to jump up through the river with your bicycle 🙂
