This circuit is the third and last part of the exploration trilogy (first and second) of the Silesian Jura highlands.
Flatter, this part totalizes 65km, with more straight lines in forests than hilly areas that characterize riding in the Jura. However few steep places like the Ostrężnik reserve, the Gory Sokole, and the Olsztyn hills are crossed. Plus the countless rocky outcrops that make the joy of rockclimbers.
It keeps the same level of cultural interest, visiting two medieval castles that form the two ends, Mirów and Olsztyn, as well as nice samples of local architecture (especially around Zrębice).
I can be started from the free of charge car park of the Mirów castle if we come from the south, or from the Olsztyn castle car park on the north, which perhaps more people are likely to find more convenient. Olsztyn, which shoudln't be confused with an homonym larger city in northern Poland, is a tiny village at the outskirts of the city of Częstochowa, surnamed the "Polish Lourdes" for its world-wide monastery of Jasna Góra.

Unfortunately I failed to record the GPS track due to low batteries, so the map will be a BMP like all other maps of the Jura :)
