Tatry/Výlety/Ascent to Predné Solisko through Furkotská dolina
Medium challenging half-day hike. We start the hike from Štrbské pleso 0,40 h to a junction Rázcestie pod Furkotou. If we continued along the red trail we would get to a tarn Jamské pleso but we choose the yellow trail instead. After 1h. along first forest path and then stone steps we get to a junction Rázcestie pod Soliskom (otherwise known as Škutnastá poľana). From this point it takes only 0,15h. to reach the chalet Chata pod Soliskom. The chalet offers good rest and refreshment. Additional 40 minutes will take us to the peak Predné Solisko.

We can take the same route back, use a chairlift or follow the blue trail 1,25 h that leads under the chairlift down to Štrbské Pleso.
