The valley leads through the Chočské Mountains. At the beginning of the route, tourists enter through a "rocky gate", after which the path snakes through wooden bridges and rocky footsteps, secured by steel ropes.

Blue markings navigate tourists through gentle terrain in forests. However, the route gets much more interesting when it hits the waterfall. This part of the route is rocky but accompanied by several ladders. Afterward, the route continues through a meadow and fields to the village Veľké Borové, where it is possible to buy some refreshments.

The route continues to the parallel Kvačianska Dolina Valley, where the popular spot Mlyny (Mills) Oblazy is usually crowded with tourists on a sunny day. Beware of goats trying to steal your food. From this spot, you can continue via Kvačianska Dolina Valley, which does not include any ladders but provides several spectacular viewing platforms, to the village Kvačany. It takes another hour to reach Prosiek, the starting point.
