The untamed Súľov Rocks rise dramatically to the heights - this is the area with distinctive rock formations in Súľov Mountains. They are located approximately 10 km from Bytča and are declared a national nature reserve.

The Súľov Rocks are very attractive for tourists, also because they are accessible from several directions and also suitable for both experienced and less skilled tourists.

The irresistible place is precisely the central part of Súľov Rocks, through which the educational trail passes. The slightly challenging route starts right at the parking lot in front of Súľov-Hradná.

On the way you will certainly not miss the rock towers, steep cliffs, rock needles, rock windows, rock cones and other interesting rock formations that can be seen from afar thanks to their bizarre shapes.

You can enjoy the hike in this unique setting best if you go at a quiet pace and not hurry. Be amazed by the incredible rock formations and contemplate over the beautiful views.

The hiking trail culminates in Súľov Castle. On a small platform with an information board, you will find several attractions that are connected with the history of the ruins of Súľov Castle.

You will get back by the same path, but this time hills will bring a steep descent through the serpentines, which in the lower parts turns into a pleasant descent to the parking lot at the Súľov chalet. The circular educational trail is approximately 4 km long.
