Description of the route: Medium difficult circle. The first part of the trip is in exposed canyon-like stretch of the Prielom Hornádu canyon. Footbridges, chains, steps, and ladders secure it. The passage requires special caution. The second part of the trip is in comfortable terrain on forest paths. Only the short ascent to the ridge of Ihrík is a bit demanding one. Easy orientation, as the paths are well and visibly marked. The tour is an attractive combination of a demanding passage through a part of the Prielom Hornádu canyon and the fairly comfortable passage over the crest of the Ihrík Mt. The greater part of the tour is in the National Nature Reserve of Prielom Hornádu.
