New Tree-top Forest Trail Set For Karkonosze Mountains

According to reports in Gazeta Wyborcza, a new elevated forest trail will be built on the territory of Lower Silesia's picturesque Karkonosze Mountains.

The trail, which is to be made accessible to people of all ages as well as wheelchair users, would be of a similar nature to the one currently in use nearby the Czech village of Lipno nad Vltavou (photographed above). 

The funds for the project will come from a German investor with prior experience of building tree-top trails in other European national parks. 

Reports suggest that the trail would have a length between 600-1,500 metres and a viewpoint situated tens of metres above the ground. 

Later this month the project investor will meet with representatives from the Karkonosze Mountains National Park to find a suitable location for the trail. Once that has been agreed, there are several permits to be granted and red tape to be overcome before construction can begin. Andrzej Raj, the director of the Karkonosze Mountains National Park, believes the process could take 12-18 months.
