Nordic Walking Park “Białowieża” ROUTE 2 – Dziedzinka (green trail)

8.8 km, ca. 1.20 h
A nearly 9 kilometres route leading along well-kept forest paths and a short stretch of tarmac. After warming up, we enter the natural reserve. Marching along a beaten tract of poorer quality we reach the point where all routes meet – and a pulse measuring point. On the right, the route is joined by yellow and red routes. We follow the markings of the green and the black routes, which run along the same path for a while. After marching for 1 km and reaching a larger forest road we turn right. We follow a beautiful sandy road for another kilometre and reach the rest shelter. Here the walkers find a board with exercises. The descriptions accompanied by photos facilitate performance of the exercises. The routes separate. For the next 2 km the route runs northwards, up to the border of Białowieża National Park. When walking along this part of the route, we can note monumental specimens of the spruce. After reaching the border of Białowieża National Park, we see a lonely forest lodge. For 30 years this quiet place, immersed in the Forest landscapes, was a home of Professor Simona Kossak (1943–2007). On the right, after running along nearly 4 km loop, our route is joined by the black route. We march along a border of Białowieża National Park, as we are informed by numerous installed boards. After 2 kilometres we reach a national memorial – a mass grave of local victims of the Nazi bestiality. We leave the Białowieża National Park on the right and leave the forest. After a short walk we reach a cross-roads, with two wooden cross, and an alley with mixed old trees (maple, aspen) leading forward. However, we turn left and walk toward first buildings of Białowieża visible in the distance. We reach a tarmac road. At Wojciechówka street we pass the offices of Białowieża Forest District and follow the signs to the place, where we started our walk.
