Following the pleasant family trail, you will walk where the Grumble Bear once walked, discovering what happened to him on his way through our village. The paws will direct you where to go, while tasks at the fourteen stops will test your enthusiasm and skills. Along the trail, take a close look at the nature, the trees, and the flowers, explore. At each stop, perform the task described on the signboard and elaborated in the list of stops and tasks. If you have a pen on you, find a letter on each signboard and copy the letters one by one into the boxes bellow – thus, you will get a message in the end. And if you haven't got a pen that’s okay, too: a surprise awaits you in the end – the bravest among you will be able to look into a real bear den.

The map is available here and you can also get it in Galetovec bar next to the village supermarket.

See you in my forest! :)
