The route leading from Ostrzyce to stone circles located a nearby Tratkownica is a great idea for a tour of Kashubia. A characteristic element of the local landscape is hilly morainic plateau with numerous deep depressions,filled with picturesque ribbon lakes and rivers. As a result, the route is very attractive in terms of landscape, but also sometimes quite difficult due to the somewhat cumbersome driveways. The effort will be rewarded by a vast and beautiful panorama of the surrounding hills and glacial gutters.
The main attraction of the tour, apart from Kashubian magnificent nature is a tumulus cemetery and stone circles in Tratkownica, called “Stone Wedding”. Unlike Wesiorow, Odrow and Lesna are almost completely unknown. An interesting zoological information is an elk farm near the village Koszowatka. On the trail there are information boards.
