    The final destination of the route is the picturesque Lykhyi waterfall. It is one of the largest single drop waterfalls in the Ukrainian Carpathians with a height of approximately 20 m. It got its name due to its vigorous character which often results in destruction of bridges built across the Lykhyi Stream (a tributary of the Tysa River). The best period for visiting it is spring and autumn, as the waterfall is more full-flowing then.

In the territory of the national park it is forbidden:

Deviation from the route.

Damage to natural objects.

Breeding hearths in places not designated for this purpose, smoking when passing through forests.

Felling and damage to trees plucking flowers, collecting medicinal plants.

Hunting for animals, destruction of their habitats.

Catching fish by any means.

Stay with firearms.

Territory littering, noise.
