Water trail of Barycz

 

Along the slow stream of Barycz there is a water trail designated, not demanding, but with a beatiful landscape.

The route:

Barycz is a very charming river. Its valley is one of most valuable ecosystems of not only Poland, but also Europe and the world. It pays off to learn about Barycza valley from the point of view of a canoe, it ensures unbelievable experience and close contact with the nature. Barycz is a river that does not demand much of a skill, thus it is excellent also for beginner canoeists. One of smallest mean drops in Poland (0,035 %) and many weirs which dam water up make it so that the river flows sluggish. The greatest obstacles which you may encounter in the middle of the water trail are fallen trees, congestions and low level of water – especially during summer. Although it is possible to handle shallows at majority of the segments, canoe trips under the weir in Sułow are often impossible during  summer. The mean flow speed of the water in Barycz is 27,5 cubic metres per second and varies greatly in the rang of 2,9 – 295 cubic metres per second. The highest level of water occurs during spring and when fishermen release water from ponds (September – October). Water trail was designated by Barycz Valley Foundation and is 60 kilometres long. Starts in Odolanów and finishes in Żmigrod. There is a planned extension and marking trails at other rivers. There are 9 weirs in the segment starting from Odolanów (Uciechów, Wróbliniec, Potasznia, Gądkowice, Bolko, Sławoszowice, Sułów, Niezgoda, Osiek from which 4 (Bolko, Sławoszowice,, Sułów i Niezgoda) cannot be traversed through and require moving canoes through the land. One can traverse through others when floodgates are up. Havens are in Odolanów, Potasznia, Jaz Bolko, Haz Sławoszowice, Milicz (park by the palace of Maltzans), a preserve of Polish primitive horses, by Grodzisko Kaszowa, Sułowo by the weir (in construction) and Żmigród. There are signs on the water trail which inform about dangerous poles, weirs and the possibility of navigating through them or not, places where you can exit canoe and launch a canoe, information about water plants, the river's tributaries and the kilometer of the river.
