Long distances make the trail perfect for the motorized tourists. You can choose a smaller part of the trail and organize a hiking or bicycle trip. Some say that there is no prettier place than the region of Sandomierz when the orchards bloom. The whole land is covered in pink foam or pure, white snow of blossom. And the autumn, when ripping red apples are everywhere, it looks picturesque and beautiful as well. Autumn stroll in the orchards is not only aesthetic experience, but also a feast. A well-cultivated orchard is an interesting site for tourist without knowledge on fruit farming. Traditional orchards are on the trail as well.
