Description of the route: Medium difficult and demanding circle with exposed stretch in the Prielom Hornádu gorge and in the Kláštorská roklina gorge. Ladders, steps and little footbridges secure these stretches. They require caution. The passage through the gorge is one-way up the stream of the brook only! The rest of the trip runs on the comfortable forest roads and paths. Orientation is easy thanks to good marking.
The stretch limited by Hrdlo Hornádu and Kláštorisko is in the territory of the National Nature Reserve of Prielom Hornádu. The tour starts by the passage of the western exposed part of the Prielom Hornádu canyon immediately above the river stream. Ascent across several waterfall of the Kláštorská roklina gorge ending in Kláštorisko follows.
