The Blue Arrow Shelter 2024

On the last Sunday on April we chose to hike close to home, along a familiar fairly short, but very steep trail from the village of Zeleznitza to the Blue Arrow shelter and back along an even shorter and steeper alternative track.

The day was sunny and warm after a series of rainy days and the trail was packed with tourists - some aspiring to the shelter and even higher, others picnicking on the lower meadows.

We had out picnic at the shelter (1650 m) and then turned back down. Next time, however, we plan to have only a small snack around the shelter and continue to the nearest peak Belchova skala (1877 m)

On the way back we decided to take a detour and "climb" peak Bukite (1250 m)
