Description of the route: Toilsome and demanding circle for its length (21 km), altitude difference and the ascent up the most exposed gorge of the Sokolia dolina. Ladders, steps, and bridges secure it. It requires precaution. The passage through the gorge is only in one direction, that up the stream of the brook! 
Pay attention to colour of the markings as they change often. Demanding but beautiful tour passing through the Nature Reserves of Prielom Hornádu and Kyseľ canyons. First it leads in little demanding stretch of the Prielom Hornádu canyon to the picturesque river valley of Tomášovská Belá. It leads further through the awe inspiring Sokolia dolina gorge to the karstic plateau of Glac and to recreation centre of Kláštorisko in the heart of the northern part of the Slovenský raj Mts.
