Overview

Bukowska Pass – Halicz - Tarnica

This hiking route can be thought of as a Bieszczady National Park classic. 

There are a few variants of it (each can be hiked in either direction), of which I chose (in October 2022) the one highlighted in bold print in the table below, which means that I took a bus from Ustrzyki Górne to Wołosate. For parking at an entrance to the national park or inside either village, you had to pay 20 zlotys, which was an equivalent to almost €4. A standard national park entry fee cost 8 zlotys per person per day.

Route Description

From the bus stop / car park near the park entry in Wołosate continue along the tarmac road for over 1.5km. You will see Tarnica (1346m), the highest summit in the Western Bieszczady, on your left.

Then the road turns right (to the south) heading for the Poland-Ukraine border (no entry!) and the trail switches to a much narrower road with occasional patches of old tarmac.

All the time you have Wołosatka brook on your right. About 3km from the start there is the first rain shelter. (Along the road, until its end at Bukowska Pass, wooden Stations of the Cross have been placed. On a couple of days during Lent hundreds of Bieszczady lovers come to celebrate Christ's Passion here. Until 2016 that was performed along the blue trail from Wołosate to Tarnica.)

Another kilometre and you stand on a bridge over Wołosatka. Soon after the bridge the road becomes steeper and an ascent of Rozsypaniec via Bukowska Pass begins. Before the pass (“przełęcz” in Polish, pronounced psheh-whench), where the slope of Rozsypaniec is steep, the road forms a very sharp bend running north for a few hundred metres, then back to the southeast, through beech woodland, to Przełęcz Bukowska. At the pass there is a toilet and a rain shelter.

Here the waymarked trail leaves the road and turns north, up the ridge that extends to the summit of Rozsypaniec and then Halicz. Before you start going up, you can walk another 150 metres along the same road that has led you here to a viewpoint located on the Poland-Ukraine border (nearly 8km from the trailhead). From there you can have the first views towards Ukraine.

After the trail leaves the road you will have to come to terms with various measures installed to prevent erosion as well as protecting the flora: railing, wooden stairways, duckboards, no trampling signs. They seem to be necessary since at weekends and during the summer holidays the park trails are packed with tourists. For the same reason, although the ridge of Rozsypaniec has a few interesting rock formations just by the trail, access to them is banned.

From Rozsypaniec, and later from the summits of Halicz and Tarnica, weather permitting you will have panoramic views. (On each of the summits are wooden benches, so they are perfect places to have a snack besides admiring the views.) In fact, most of the trail above the treeline is very scenic.

The trail descends the north side of Halicz, then – after about half a mile – turns west towards the saddle between Tarnica and Krzemień (Przełęcz Goprowska). You traverse the south side of Kopa Bukowska (1319m) almost horizontally, then slowly lose elevation traversing the southwest side of Krzemień (excellent views!) to get to Przełęcz Goprowska. This broad saddle at 1160m was originally called Rowiń Jackowa.

Goprowska Pass lies 5.7km away from Bukowska Pass (via the trail), which means that when you get to the pass, you have covered a distance of over 13.5km from the TH in Wołosate. From the pass blue marks can take you near the summit of Krzemień, whose rocky ridge looks tempting. Unfortunately, the summit and the ridge have been closed for hikers by the park authorities.

From Goprowska Pass it is 0.75km to the pass at 1286m (Przełęcz Sidło/Siodło, sometimes called Przełęcz pod Tarnicą, whose elevations is often mistakenly given as 1275m) which separates Tarnica at 1346m from Tarniczka at 1315m (the highpoint of Szeroki Wierch). From that pass yellow marks will take you to the summit of Tarnica, the highest in the Western Bieszczady.

When you have come back to the pass (it is 400m up and then back), you pick up the red marks again to follow the long and broad top of the ridge of Szeroki Wierch to Ustrzyki Górne. That will be over 7.5km and just several metres up.

Tarnica Instead of walking over Szeroki Wierch, from Przełęcz pod Tarnicą you can descend to Wołosate via blue marks. This is the shortest route to the highest summit, taken by most of the visitors to the national park, so it only makes sense if you have parked your car in Wołosate. The distance is 4km. 2 PIX:

Red Tape & Camping

Camping, bivouacking, walking off the trail and dogs are not allowed. The nearest campsite is in Ustrzyki Górne.

When To Go

Mountains in the evening
January - by Tomek Lodowy
  • There will be crowds in summer (except September) and at weekends.
  • Winters can be harsh.
  • Bear in mind that bears are most dangerous during spring. I have never heard of any problems with bears on this route, but you should be bear aware.
  • The best time to go seems to be late summer or early autumn.
  • Weather forecast for Ustrzyki Górne at approx. 650m on AccuWeather

Sudetes

The westernmost reaches of the Sudetes are called the Lusatian Mountains (Lužické hory/Góry Łużyckie/Lausitzer Gebirge). The area - its apex being the summit of Luž at 793m - is dotted with volcanic (basalt) necks as well as sandstone rocks.

Sunset as seen from Panska skalaPanská skála, Lužické hory
The air place.Nonnensteig ferrata, Lausitzer Gebirge

The heart of the Western Sudetes is granite, Hercynian (Variscan) of age, namely the batholith of the Iser-Giant Mountains-Jelenia Góra Basin with metamorphic rocks around it. Hence the double-faced, i.e. granite-gneiss/schist, nature of the Iser (Izerskie/Jizerské), Giant (Karkonosze/Krkonoše) and Rudawy Janowickie mountains, which surround the city of Jelenia Góra (Hirschberg in German). The granite chunks of all these mountains, i.e. especially the north of the Rudawy, the Polish part of the Giant Mountains and the Czech part of the Iser Mountains, teem with clusters of tors.

View from the top of Smrek Rebirth of the forest in the Iser Mountains
Southwest of JeleniaGóra sit the Iser Mountains, which are a vast area of broad, gentle, heavilyforested ridges with plenty of soggy ground. The mountains, whose three massifs (Zielona Kopa with its highpoint Wysoka Kopa, Smrk-Smrek and Jizera) exceed 1120m, take their name from the River Iser (Izera/Jizera). The river rises in the north of the mountains to traverse them generally south-southeast, mostly along the Poland-Czechia border. Along the uppermost stretch of the Iser as well as its tributary, Jizerka, stretch pretty extensive peatbogs. To the south of Jelenia Góra rears up the main ridge of the Giant Mountains. This is the only range in the Sudetes which rises well above the tree line, cradled several mountain glaciers in the Ice Age, and sports several fine cirques and a couple of decent tarns.

The main ridge of the Giant Mountains as well as the Polish side of the range are mostly of granite but the highest peak (of all in the Sudetes), Sněžka/Śnieżka at 1603m is formed of hornfels (hornstone), a rock which is super-resistant to erosion as it was hardened through contact with hot granitic magma. Also, the long side ridges on the Czech side, which is much bigger than the Polish Karkonosze, are made of metamorphic rocks. Getting back to granite, the highpoint of the western part of the Giant Mountains, Vysoké Kolo/Wielki Szyszak at 1509m, is made of this rock. Two kilometres west of this summit rises the River Elbe.

North of the Jelenia Góra Basin extends a low mountain range (barely above 700m) named the Kaczawskie Mountains (after the River Kaczawa), displaying Caledonian (early Paleozoic) folds and arange of rock types typical of the Sudetes. Besides being the only bit of the Western Sudetes where crystalline limestone occurs, the Kaczawskie Mountains show volcanic rocks - both old (lava that covered the bottom of the Paleozoic sea) and relatively young (Tertiary). The mountains take their name from the River Kaczawa, which rises inside them and flows through them. The mountains have been extensively mined and quarried for several centuries, along with their neighbours, the Rudawy Janowickie ("Rudawy" means Ore Mts) which extend south from the little town of Janowice, on the other side of the River Bóbr (Bober in German). The mountain ridge of the Kaczawskie Mountains that faces the Rudawy Janowickie across the gorge of the Bóbr is named Góry Ołowiane, literally the Lead Mountains (Turzec, 684m). The Rudawy Janowickie are partly of granite and teem with fine crags, especially their northwestern part including twin hills called Sokoliki/Góry Sokole (Falkenberge/Falcon Mts), which are a mecca for rock climbers from the west of Poland. (People from southwestern Poland usually do their climbing course there, which also happened to me towards the end of the 1980's.) Southwest of the Iser Mountains, on the other side of the uppermost section of the Lusatian Neisse river (Lužická Nisa in Czech), a long, mostly granite ridge of Ještěd-Kozákov runs from NW to SE. The highest summit of this ridge, Ještěd, which stands in the west, towering over the city of Liberec, has an elevation of 1012m (and 517m of prominence). At the eastern end of the Ještěd-Kozákov Ridge - halfway between the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and the tableland of the Central Sudetes – some sandstone rock cities can be found. This area, which lies just outside the Sudetes, is usually called the Czech or Bohemian Paradise.

W Carpathians

The Northwestern Carpathians are the widest and most complex part of the Carpathian mountain chain, stretching from the Danube River at Devín, east of Vienna (from the geologist’s perspective, the Carpathians extend a little beyond the Danube there, as the Hundsheimer/Hainburger Mountains at 480m, but we have decided to ignore such low hills on this page), to the valley of the Topľa River in the east of Slovakia. All three Carpathian lithologic belts – flysch, crystalline, and volcanic – are extensively developed here. It is also here that the the High Tatras (Gerlachovský štít, 2655 m) rise – the highest and most alpine in character mountain range in all of the Carpathians, which straddles the border between Slovakia and Poland.
High Tatras Vysoké Tatry (High Tatras) from Nízké Tatry (Low Tatras) - fall
Apart from the Tatras (which can be subdivided into the Western, High and Belianske Tatras), known in both Poland and Slovakia as Tatry, only the Low Tatras (Nízke Tatry) – a discrete mountain range that runs parallel to the Tatras between the valleys of the Váh and Hron rivers – exceed 2000 m in elevation. Despite there being plenty of crystalline ranges and massifs in the Northwestern Carpathians, the third highest mountain range in this part of the Carpathians stands inside the flysch belt, just north of the Tatras, and bears the name of High Beskid (Beskid Wysoki, more often called Beskid Żywiecki in Poland, after the town of Żywiec). Its highest massif tops out at 1725 m. The other three ranges that rise above timberline are the Little Fatra (Malá Fatra), the Great Fatra (Veľká Fatra) and the calcareous Chočské vrchy, all situated west of the Tatras or the Low Tatras. Like most of the other crystalline ranges in the Northwestern Carpathians, both the Fatras have vast areas formed of limestone and dolomite, within which some bold mountains stand. The most interesting of them is spectacular Veľký Rozsutec sitting at the north end of the Little Fatra.
High-Börzsöny panorama  Börzsöny - spring

In the southern chunk of the Northwestern Carpathians there are about a dozen hilly areas where volcanic rocks dominate. The highest of them, heavily wooded Pol'ana, reaches 1458 m and represents the remnants of a large stratovolcano. The volcanic belt of Northern Hungary crosses the Danube north of Budapest to extend further west, towards Lake Balaton, as the Transdanubian Hills, which are not regarded as part of the Carpathians except the Visegrád Mountains. 

On the map below triangles indicate the highest peaks of particular ranges. If you hover the mouse over them, you will see the names of the ranges and peaks. Black pentagons indicate major towns (if available, links to airports open upon clicking). The table below the map lists the ranges of the Northwestern Carpathians west to east, sorted by the dominant rock type, in the following format: mountain range - highest peak - elevation (in meters). Ranges composed almost exclusively of calcareous rocks (white triangles on the map) are marked green in the table. More information about limestone areas is to be found below the table.

The Slanské and Zemplén Mountains actually make up a single range, cut in half by the border between Slovakia and Hungary - hence the two names. The whole range is also sometimes referred to as the Eperjes-Tokaj Mountains, after the two towns at opposite ends of the range (the Slovak name of Eperjes is Prešov). However, the traditional name of the range was the Sátor (meaning Tent) Mountains, after the shape of its mountains.
