Narrow-Gauge Rail Trail

The Old Narrow-gauge Railway Route

This path was created on the embankment of the former narrow-gauge railway that used to connect Zmigrod and Milicz thanks to efforts of local authorities. On the route, ancient stops are now turned into resting places where cyclists can take a break and learn something about the history of the railway. Near to Krośnice and Wierzchowice you can take a ride – there is a new 3-kilometre route of a narrow-gauge railway.
