Bicyle track begins in Górki Noteckie and heads through the Scots Pine forests to Przyłęg. This terrain is a Protected Landscape Area called "Barlinek Primeval Forest". On the way we cross the yellow bicycle track "Nature Reserves Peculiarities " and pass over the "Polka" river. In Przyłęg the track turns left by the national road nr 22 and on the end of the village, close to the fishing ponds, turns right back into forest. Following the blue marks we pass next to the "Przyłężek River" Nature Reserve and reach the resting place close to the bridge over this small forest river. Continuing, we reach the crossroad with the road from Wilanów to Santoczno. We pass it by and go straith with the blue marks. After around 15 km we pass next to the old forest range house that was transformed into the resort called "Przyłęsko Forest House". Next, we leave the area of Strzelce Krajeńskie Forestry District and enter for a little while to Kłodawa Forestry District. Soon we reach picturesque mid-forest villages: Rybakowo and Santoczno.  Among numerous houses we can find here a beautiful church and park. Here the track heads south-east to Zdroisko. Here we can find unusall wooden common-room. It is worth to step in and see the exhibition of historical objects, photographs and maps connected with Zdroisko. Going further, we cross again the busy national road nr 22 and after just a few steps we can see the small church built by the local citizens and consecrated to Saint Hubert. Afterwards the track connects with the yellow track "Nature Reserves Peculiarities". Zdroisko ends with the numerous houses and the training and holiday centre. Then we enter the forest again, onto the area of the "Zdroisko Beeches" Nature Reserve. The reserve protects almost 200 years old natural beeches stand on the area of 75,57 ha.
