Kumiałka – Brzozówka trail is 44,6 km long.
The first part of the trail (about 13 km) is along Kumiałka river. In Zabrodzie and Szumowo village area the river flows through a narrow forested valley, which may be difficult to pass due to fallen trees and branches intruding into the river channel. There are two bay areas: near Mielewszczyzna village and in Korycin with a campsite and bathing area.
There is a need to carry the equipment on weirs in Korycin (8,8 km of the trail) and Mielniki village (11,2 km of the trail). We then enter Brzozówka river (31,7 km). There can be lots of water plants in lower part of the river that may form obstacles. However, natural miracles of meandering river with abundant flora and fauna are definitely worth seeing. In the second part of the year going through this trail can be comparable to exploring the Amazon.
When the water is high there may be problem with lower footpaths in Brzozowa village area (Syberia). On the 30 km of the trail, near Karpowicze village, there is a bay with bathing area and a campsite. You can buy food supplies in a local shop.
