The journey starts at Komisárky and leads through the forest trails to Sakrokopec. The route continues to Malá Baňa peak. It is not high, but it offers a beautiful walk and views. The estimated time of the route is about 5 hours. After reaching the peak, the walk can be finished at the Detvianska tram stop in Rača to catch Tram 3 back to town.
