Description of the route: Moderately demanding trip. The route runs through the central part of the Štiavnické vrchy Mts. and offers plenty wonderful views. Goldberg Mt. also called Zlatý vrch (850 m) is the highest point on the route which too opens generous views of the environs (spas kúpele Vyhne and Sklené Teplice can be spotted too). Pay attention to orientation in terrain. Above all the locality of Majer and the edge of the Nature Reserve Kamenný jarok can be problematic. The route leads mostly on forest and field roads or paths, the final part on public road communication.
