Stay Safe[edit]

In general places on the trail're safe. Some district can be a poorer one. Single tourists're advised to stay cautious while crossing them. If you come to Będzin (especially by train or bus) after dusk always take a taxi. The trail doesn't cross much of forested areas. If you cross them, always wear long sleeve clothes to protect against ticks. If you see a one on your skin, call the doctor. Wild boars're not much big hazard on the trail and vipers're rather rare there.
