From the village we continue by a field road across beautiful meadow along the river Vah after a two kilometers we enter the forest (here you can fill a bottles with natural spring water) and the route gets narrow and it transforms to singletrail. In a few next kilometers awaits us first serious hill to the top of Vislavce valley.

After this technical climb we relax during the descent to the village Liptovska Porubka. We pass the local farm and continue by a field road to the village Kralova Lehota. We can stop here to get some drink from local tavern and then continue straight the road to the end of the village.

At the Pioneer camp – very popular place particularly during the communist era – we turn left and continue with a slight ascent copying the mountain by our right hand side. On the left hand side we can enjoy awesome views on the mountains High Tatras and flowering meadows. After the five kilometers of this gravel forest road we cross the river on our left side and after climb of the short hill we get above the village Hybe.
