Gorce

gorceAlthough geographically the Gorce are a part of the Western Beskid Mountains, in practice they are somewhat isolated. While they seem to cover a small area, there are beautiful views plus numerous trails that undoubtedly deserves the attention of any mountaineer or hiker. However, most of the slopes are wooded, with large meadows on the tops that provide great panoramas of the Tatra and Pieniny mountain ranges. The highest summit is Turbacz at 1310 m.
