On Pomorskie trail
Comfortable shoes, a detailed map, useful can be also a working GPS. Moreover, packed lunch, a bottle of water and a raincoat just in case – you do not need much to start an exciting adventure during hikes on touristic trails. And there is many of them in the Pomorskie. The most interesting trails in the region can be found on the terrain or in the buffer zones of Pomorskie nature protection areas – two national parks (Słowiński, Bory Tucholskie), as well as 9 landscape parks.
Hikes can be started from the easier trails, to with time enter more diffcult level and conquer longer and more demanding trails. All are marked out in such a way as to cover both the nature treasures or interesting landscapes, as well as human creations, including regional symbols and secrets. While following Pomorskie trails, we will come across a more than 500-years-old grand Bartuś oak in Park Narodowy Bory Tucholskie, that with its name alludes to the Polish record-holder, around 700-year-old “Bartek” from the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship. Unforgettable moments will be ensured by red trail in Słowiński Park Narodowy that leads in its first part across the Baltic Sahara, that is dunes Łącka and Czołpińska. The highest hills on this trails are natural overlooks of the whole Park. It is also worth to stop on a yelllow trail of Park Krajobrazowy Dolina Słupi [Słupia Valley Landscape Park] and take a moment to see a huge glacial erratic, not by a coincidence called a dragon egg. It has been moved to the Pomorskie Region ages ago by an ice sheet, and to this day baffles with its size.
A black trail in Nadmorski Park Krajobrazowy [Coastal Landscape Park] will surprise us with a different nature monument in the form of glacial puddingstone caves with weirdly shaped stone columns. We will find them in a Kashubian village Mechowo, of which interesting history goes back to the 13th century. Whereas in Puszcza Darżlubska located in the north of Kashubia, for the seekers of inanimate nature treasures await other glacial erratics with telling names – Diableski Kamień [Devil's Stone] and Boża Stopka [Godly Foot]. A part of a blue trail of Brda, on the terrain of Tucholski Park Krajobrazowy [Tucholski Landscape Park], worth of a recommendation is Piekło [Hell] nature reserve. Located here boulder deposit area is classified as a nature monument, and the sinister name of this place was assigned by keelmen who, while flowing down the Brda, encountered here various obstacles. We can name interesting places with no end, but one thing is sure – each one of them is worth seeing.
During the hike signs will be our lead. They are located on trees, stones, posts or walls. They have a characteristic form of three adjoining to each other horizontal lines, of which two peripheral ones are white, whereas the colour of the middle one depends on the character of the trail – its length, rank and function.
Let's always stick to our trail to be sure nothing interesting gets past our attention. Let's go!
