The highest peak of the Kaczawskie Mountains

Skopiec is one of the three highest peaks in the Kaczawskie Mountains, belonging to the Crown of Polish Mountains according to the list of the highest peaks in Polish mountain ranges established in 1997. The Kaczawskie Mountains, together with the Kaczawskie Foothills, are the lowest range in the entire Sudety Mountains. Skopiec is a small and forested peak, not offering too many views. Tourists used to have to wander a lot to find the highest point, but now the hill is well marked and it is clear where to take the right photo for the photo book! It is therefore a summit that can be climbed very easily and is suitable for a short family walk.
