Mount Grześ is proof of the axiom that ‘easy’ does not always mean ‘not worthwhile.’ The only problem with the trail to Grześ is its lack of excitement. The path, which resembles a walk in a park most of the time, is incapable of tiring even the laziest person.

Shortly before the mountain lodge on Polana Chochołowska glade there is a right turn that goes into the forest on a road rutted by carts. Fifteen minutes later you reach Bobrowiecki Potok stream and the trail becomes a hardened forest path with alternately smooth and angular pebbles. Thirty minutes more up a sharp ascent leads you out of the forest. An hour and 15 minutes out from Polana Chochołowska the trail intersects with a Slovak trail to Bobrowiec, which goes downhill to the right and is marked in blue. There is a fabulous view from here of Kominiarski Wierch and the peaks surrounding the Jarząbcza and Wyżnia Chochołowska valleys as well as the seven-kilometre long Długi Upłaz Ridge, reaching as far as to Mount Wołowiec.
[rys.str. 136]
From here it is only 30 minutes to the summit. The trail goes through a corridor of kosodrzewina shrubs resembling a gully that leads right to the peak, where you will find a wooden cross erected by the Slovaks to commemorate the times when religious literature was smuggled via Mount Grześ in the 1970s and 1980s. The great view from Grześ is the reason for climbing this low peak. As I have mentioned before, the view of the silhouette of Kominiarski Wierch and Polana Chochołowska makes every Pole think proudly: ‘This is all OURS.’ The Spálená, Smutná and Látaná valleys are clearly visible against the backdrop of two-thousand-metre peaks that could serve as a model for ski jumps. Another interesting sight is the nearly five-kilometre long crest leading towards the lonely elevation of Mount Osobita. An interesting geographical fact at this point: Mount Grześ belongs to the Długi Upłaz Ridge, which is the Baltic-Pomorze watershed. All the rivers on the Slovak side flow into the Black Sea and all those on the Polish to the Baltic Sea. To get back home, return along the same route or walk for an hour along the Długi Upłaz Ridge via Rakoń to the Wyżnia Chochołowska Valley.
