The Wildlife Reserve "Stok Szyndzielni"

The Wildlife Reserve "Stok Szyndzielni" is one of the oldest in the Silesian Beskids. It mainly protects lower subalpine forests with rare plants. It is worth noting that the name of the reserve is misleading. Although it is close to the massif of Szyndzielnia, the reserve is not located on the slopes of this mountain, but on the slopes of the ridge connecting Mounts Klimczok and Blatnia, in the vicinity of Mount Trzy Kopce. While hiking along the above mentioned ridge following the Yellow Trail, we pass along the south-western boundary of the reserve.

Mount Trzy Kopce Wiślańskie (810 m) is a picturesque mountain in the Silesian Beskid. It rises above the Vistula River, in the mountain range of Równica and Orłowa. It owes its name to the once stone mounds piled to mark the confluence of the borders of three villages: Wisła, Ustroń and Brenna. The mountain is an important keystone of several ridges. There are numerous hiking and walking trails running through the area. From its top one can see a fine panorama. Hikers can rest in the hostel "Telesforówka" located on the top.
Jaskinia w Trzech Kopcach (The Cave on the Three Mounds), also called Grota Klimczoka (The Grotto of Klimczok), is one of the landslide, slotted caves. It is located near the top of Trzy Kopce in the Klimczok Massif in the Silesian Beskids. It is the third longest cave in the Beskids. The Grotto of Klimczok, located not far from the yellow tourist trail connecting Klimczok and Blatnia. It was discovered relatively recently, in 1946.
Klimczok, rising to a height of 1117 m above sea level, is one of the most famous peaks of the Silesian Beskids, which is the culmination of a larger group of mountains, stretching between the valleys of the Vistula and the Biała rivers. Other more famous peaks belonging to the range of Klimczok are Szyndzielnia (1028 m), Magura (1109) and Błatnia (917). Thanks to a big number of hiking trails, mountain shelters, and its easily accessible location not far from Szczyrk and Bielsko-Biala, Klimczok is a very popular tourist destination.
Karkoszczonka Pass (729 m) is the lowest passage from west to east in the main ridge of the Silesian Beskids, stretching from Trzy Kopce near Klimczoka to Malinowska Skała in the range of Skrzyczne and Mount Barania Góra. The pass is the shortest connection between Brenna and Szczyrk. There are popular hiking trails in the area and a private hostel called “Uncle Tom's Cabin".
Mount Blatnia (Błotny) rises 917 m above sea level. It is located in the ridge extending from Klimczok towards west, in the Silesian Beskids. The peaks can be a destination of a nice and not too tiresome hike from Jaworze, Bielsko-Wapienica, Brenna, and a few other places. Originally the name of the summit was Błotny, but it was misspelled as Blatnia by Austrian cartographers making the maps of the area during the partitions of Poland. Yet, the new name has been widely adopted and has become official.
