We went in Suchá Belá route. It was a 2 hour hike up the bend of the river with obstacles (steep ladders, chains, steps, rocks, water). Good shoes are needed. We went back with bikes from the mountain in 30 min (walk 2 hours) 7 eu each fir bike rent. Great experience!

A highlight of my trip to the area. Beware, we were there during the low season and the trails were still VERY busy. Stay away from the lakes to get a more secluded feel to the area.

Coming to Slovakia specially for this treat, I spent a weekend exploring this park place. During my marathon, starting from Podlesok, I visited Klastorisko, Tomasovsky vyhlad, Sokolia dolina, Palcmanska masa, Stratensky kanon and Dobsinska jaskyna, coming back to Podlesok by Sunday evening. I will not write how astonishingly beautiful and gorgeous the nature around me looked like - it looks much better than any image picture can convey. I would rather list some practical points from my hiking experience in Slovensky Raj:
* beware of downloading maps from the internet, some of them could be outdated
* the green-marked trails imply it is an easier but not the easiest way
* the trails may not be marked completely well everywhere
* the weather and shoes do make a difference
* better sure than sorry

We took Velky Sokol route which took us about 3 hours to get trough from our car (near Pila) which was parked 30minutes of walking from the beginning of the trail itself. The first hour or so is an easy walk through woods, then it gets a little bit more tricky. You have to go from one side to other over a small river many times and that's why it is strongly recommended to have proper hiking shoes otherwise there is a good chance to get wet feet. After around 1.5hours is the most interesting part - you have to climb over slippery wooden steps and logs over the mentioned river. The views are nice and worth to see.
Once we cleared the Velky Sokol it took us a good 3hours (including the part where we got a little bit lost due to lack of direction signs). Good thing is that way back is mostly downwards on paved track (not very interesting views along the way tough).

Hornád Canyon = after 2 hours you get tired of same view, Sucha bela = better / good place to go with families, but also really crowded. cheap tickets, a lot of trails, also for biking, butwe were a bit disapointed, of the landscape

Interesting paths lead you across medium or difficult surroundings, so be ready to climb, run, hike, walk across rivers, ride a bike or whatever needed:)
Some of the signed itineraries are not well known and visited so be careful: lot of stairs/ladders /chains move or are broken and you may really hurt yourself if fall down in the valley/river.
Amazing, full of adrenaline, wild nature, spectacular views. I’m basically slovakian but travelled to slovakian hidden jems only this year!:) i recommend

Very nice option for just a walking and another excellent option to hiking! The weather change a lot during the day. If you are going in a long hiking, bring you stuff.

A walk in Paradise is always advisable but this is a special treat for the lover of adventurous hikes with spectacular views . The path is steep but well secured with ladders and rails.

Dealing with incliment weather in the high Tatras i followed a friends suggestion and could not have been happier! Slovak paradise is like a via ferrata but in canyon and they require no guide / specialized equipment! We did it as a family (with teens) and it was awesome. Scary - happy - everyone gets wet and everyone gets at least one adrenaline rush from the ladders. The only disappointment is that the return loops are rather boring (like walking old logging roads). There is nothing like this in north america. So cool!
