SK, Small Carpathians: Trek to Krslenice and Cerna Skala – VIDEO

Published: 1.11.2016
If you like tourism and beautiful trips come and join us for one easy walk to the Small Carpathian mountains. We start at Plavecky Mikulas village. There are several marked tourist trails going on into the landscape.

Today we visit the nature reserve of Krslenica and Cerna Skala. You can start either in Losonec village or Smolenice village which is on the other side of the Small Carpathians. However, both points of interest are easier to access when going from Plavecky Mikulas.

We start our trek in the center of the village. Here we join the blue marked trail and reach local water tank. There we join the yellow marked trail. Be ready to catch your breath for the trail goes uphill. However, you will be rewarded because soon you would be able to enjoy vistas over local hills and also Plavecky Castle and distant Pavlovske Hills in Moravia. Karst gorges are also amazing and also eidence that you stepped upon the territory of Krslenica national nature reserve (518 m). Endangered fauna and flora has been protected here since 1984. The karst valley and local caves fall also under the protection. Among the caves is, for instance, Derava Skala which is open to the public. The area is under the fifth level of protection. What is interesting about the area is that there is the largest formation of rocky cliffs in the Small Carpathians. Climbers appreciate it. They like to visit Krslenice.

Plavecký Castle   trip to Krslenice and Cerna Skala

The tourist trail goes through mixed forest to a point below Cerna Skala (478 m.). There the yellow trail and red trail cross (Stefanikova Highway). Our goal is Cerna Skala (662 m). Therefore, we must go steeply uphill onto the rocky ridge. We are amazed by a rock gate, limestone rocks, and vast Podunajske Hills and forests of the Small Carpathian mountains. What you can see from there are peaks of the Male Karpaty, partially you can see Tribez, Povazsky Inovec. Our attention was, however, immediately caught by the nuclear powerplant in Jaslovske Bohunice. In case you are lucky enough, you can spot herds of mouflons living in the area. The greatest experience is the vista over long and narrow ridge dotted by crags.

We could go on and see Driny cave. Or we could go to  Smolenice chateau. Yet we went back to the crossroads where we face to possible routes – to  Ostry Kamen, Zaruby, or Mon Repos cabin. We chose the former gamekeeper's lodge now a cabin. A water spring of the same name springs to the surface at the cabin.

Should you have enough energy, leave the cabin and follow the Stefanik highway up to the mountains of Klokoc or Vapenna (Rostun). Our choice was to follow the green trail (parallel to the nature trail of Plavecky Kras) – Mokra Valley down to Plavecky Mikulas.
