Some say that the mountain trail leading along the Bukowe Berdo ridge is the most beautiful of the Bieszczady trails. Although I will not quite agree with this, because it is difficult not to be delighted with the others like Polonina Wetlinska, it is a fact that the walk from Muczne makes an impression. During my mid-May trip it was pretty cold, windy, and the steepest part the ridge approach was covered with black and icy layer of snow. However, the blue trail leading through Szoltyn and Połonina Dzwiniacka to the highest peak of the massif turned out to be fairy-tale, I felt as if I were in a little Tibet.
