Prepare for 1000 steps.
Jun 2019
Nice national park about 10 klms out of town. To get to the top of table mountain, you need to negotiate many steps so not for the unfit or those with mobility issues. Restaurant and trinket shops on top with wonderful views of the valley below. Very popular with school groups, so be prepared for some barging et al. Worthwhile excursion. Other parts of this spark may be better suited to a more gentle stroll.

A must-see.
May 2019 • Couples
This place is a must-see for all mountain- and hiking-lovers. You'll be amazed by the views and rocks.
Highly recommend taking the hike from the Errand Rocks to Szczeliniec Wielki as this was the most picturesque part of our visit there.

A unique experience - a must see in Poland
Jun 2018 • Couples
The mountains called us away from the main Polish tourist sights and the Stołowe Mountains have not disappointed. With the labyrinth at Błednę Skały to the incredible Szczeliniec Mały plateau, this area is breathtaking. The attractions are all 10PLN per person and car parking 20PLN. Błednę Skały is accessible by a single track road that has a controlled entry allowing cars to travel up and back in 30 minute slots. It's all very well organised. We travelled up in our 7.5m motorhome and the road is a bit bumpy although very doable at 15mph. The road takes 10 minutes to travel. Well worth the trip although it is a challenging at time hike through the rocks so difficult for anyone with walking difficulties or very young children. Some of the gaps you have to squeeze through are very tight. Szczelinliec Mały is breathtaking and not what you expect. There's plenty of parking in Karlow and there is a tough hike up to the plateau where you climb over 600 steps to reach the top. There are restaurants there and wonderful views so if you don't want to pay 10PLN per person you can turn around and go back down. Although you will miss a treat. The rock formations and diversity of the landscape is outstanding and is a must in our book.

Accessible geology in the south-west

A beautiful mountain park; not very challenging mountains, good tourist mountains- and some beautiful structures. Some good named structures to admire, and the ecological setting is well presented- and should be appreciated.

Hiking trails between, around and under rocks.
Jun 2017 • Solo
There are several trails worth walking in the park. but if you have to choose one, I recommend the trail on Szczeliniec Wielki mountain (900 m above sea lvl) just north of Karlow village. In good weather plan to spend about 2-3 lovely hours of climbing some stairs and enjoying the views.
This beautiful hiking trail is in my opinion best visited in a summer evening after 1900 hrs when there will be less others to block the views (kiosks by the foot of the hill will be closed in 2200 hrs). In about 15 minutes walking up the steep stairs along rocky hillside you'll suddenly come across a surprise pub terrace with great views and good selection of beers to enjoy there. How did they get all the building materials up?
Further the trail is for a small fee and it goes over the wooded plateau on top of the hill. It takes you through a natural labyrinth of picturesque formations and lovely crevices aptly named. Devil's Kitchen for example is my favourite.
The trail ends on the corner of the plateau with galleries looking south and east.

Nice walk between the rocks
May 2017 • Couples
Nice place to visit. Not far from the border from Czech Republic. If you drive by car from Kudowa Zdrój into the national park around 15 min drive there is the entrance to see Błędne Skały. You have to pay 20 zł (€4,77) for your car to get in. Every hour till a quarter past the hour you'r aloud to drive up to Błędne Skały. (This is because of the small road). At Błędne Skały is a good parking place with a free toilet. And just a short walk you have the entrance to see the rocks. You have to pay 7zł p.p (€1,75) to get in. You can see some site seeing with a beautiful view (+/-900m above sea level). And walk through the labyrinth of rocks. Its a nice walk to go between the rocks. It can be very narrow and sometimes you have the bend to go through. But it is a exciting walk. It is suitable for children, pregnant ladies and older people. If you have physical problems, it may be not so easy to walk between the rocks. It took us around 1,5/2 hours to get from the small city Kudowa Zdrój to Błędne Skały and back.

Table mountains
Jul 2016 • Family
One of 23 national parks in Poland, hidden in the corner of Kłodzko Valley. Authorities offices in the town of Kudowa-Zdrój, next to still being developed Ekocentrum (former Frog Museum). Park is mainly famous for its rock formations, with two of them Błędne Skały (Errant Rocks) and Szczeliniec Wielki having unusual shape of huge tables - that's how they look from the distance, when getting closer those "tables" are in fact enormous stone labyrinths. There are more rocks, such as Skalne Grzyby (Stone Mushrooms) or Urwisko Batorowskie (Batorów Cliff). But there's also many moors, which are not that much interesting for tourists as rocks, but are home to huge numbers of plant and animal species. Impressive choice of colour marked trails both for walkers and cyclists. Visiting park without own car can be a challenge, especially in cooler part of year. There're good connections on main roads from south or north, but there's only one service (mixed operations from Polish/Czech bus companies) that goes across the park through the village of Karłów (great base for day trips to all major attractions, located right in the heart of the park), and that's only from Easter till the end of September.

A masterpiece of nature.
Feb 2015 • Friends
One of the most interesting places in Poland. A masterpiece of nature! Great place for the whole family, brilliant views, and delicious coffee to grab at the top. On the Sunday that we visited, there were very few people on the trail - best is Rock Mushrooms, the trail which leads from the foot of Szczeliniec Wielki to its gigantic rocks at the top.
Unfortunately fees must be paid, however reasonable amount.

Beautiful views and rock formations
Sep 2015 • Solo
Very beautiful day for a climb to the Table Mountains. This was a very easy walk up with a few places to stop to catch your breath if you need to. At the top there were places to eat and sit down and and enjoy the stunning views. At the top, you need to pay 7 PLN to enter the rock formation tour area where you will see all sorts of formations that may resemble animals and areas called "Hell's Kitchen" and "Hell" which were pretty amusing names. Paying the ticket is also paying to get to the descent side. You will see others descending on your way up...so I guess if you just want to enjoy a hike and the view at top, you can make your way down the same way you came up.
