Trail description: Nižný Kelčov (railway station) - Makov - Makov (Kopanice) - sedlo Lemešná - Kasárne (chalets) - Veľké Karlovice (Czech Rep.)

Trail starting point is the railway station in Nižný Kelčov. Here it joins the trail # 1 – Blue cycle trail to Makov. There is a climb to the skiing – hiking centre in Kasárne. Route # 487 takes us by way of a slight climb to Makov. A short 1.5 km section takes us along the A road through the village until we reach the Makov chalet. We leave the main road left over the bridge towards Kopanice on the Red hiking path. A slight climb to the beginning of Kopanice. By the bus-stop take a right on to the new tarmac road to Kasárne. (If you go straight on here , after 1.5 km on the Red hiking path, about 30 m from the road behind the last house we can see a huge tree – a smooth elm in Kopanice. It is one of the oldest elm trees in Europe). From here over the Lemešná saddleback we continue along the Yellow hiking path. On the right of the road there is the memorial on Lemešná saddleback, a silent witness to the fight of the Ján Ušiak partisan group here on the border with the Czech Rep. Here we can turn right into the Czech Rep. to Veľké Karlovice-Podťatého on the Czech cycle path. We keep on along the new road and after 2 km at the cross-roads take left up a slight incline right up to Butorke. The last 500 m drop gently parallel with the Green hiking path to the chalets in Kasárne. There are wonderful views in Lemešná from the trail but mainly from the open ridge of the Vsetínske Hills and of the Morava-Silesian Beskydy. From Kasárne we can go on to Veľké Karlovice in the Czech Rep. on the Czech regional trail R2.
