Description of the route: Demanding and difficult tour for its great altitude difference and the ascent to the Veľký Rozsutec Mt. Pay attention to the marking in the top part, orientation in the remaining stretches is easy. The first part of the tour from village Štefanová to Podžiar coincides with the route of the instructive path. 
There are also dangerous spots in the top parts in the period of spring or autumn frosts, and the forest around the saddle of Medziholie-Štefanová is muddy during and long after the rainy days.
