    This is one of the younger landscape parks in Poland, which was established in 1998. The Silesian Beskids form a mountain range, which in the area of the Polish Beskids and the whole Polish Carpathians is the westernmost mountain group. Its highest peak is Skrzyczne (1257 m). The second prominent massif (merging with Skrzyczne into one range) is Barania Góra (1220 m). The range of Barania Góra and Skrzyczne is the core part of these mountains, which clearly distinguish themselves from the two remaining parts of the Silesian Beskids: the western part culminating in the peak of Wielka Czantoria (995 m) and the northern part, where the highest peak is Klimczok (1117 m).

    Mount Malinowska Skała rises to a height of 1152 m above sea level (in the mountain range of the Silesian Beskid). The mountain itself is rather not a tourist destination. This peak is usually passed by while hiking from Barania Góra to Skrzyczne or from the Salmopolska Pass to the village of Lipowa. However, it is worthwhile to take a closer look at Mount Malinowska Skała, because on its top there is a huge size block of sandstone - a monument of nature - and the top itself has a unique geological structure.
