Babky is the easiest and fastest view point and top in West Tatras. It is in the very West side all the range in the side range to the South. You start at the parking spot at the crossroads to the Hotel Mnich and the cabin area. You follow the blue sign up hill on the road going to the cabins. Then the path goes steep in the forest. After the steepest part you connect another path (mountain road). You continue and follow the sign to the crossroads by a wooden shelter. At the shelter you go left and follow the signs to the top. The way up can be by the rainy and wet weather quite muddy and slippery. Then you follow the range to the back and in the seddle you follow the signs to the mountain cabin Červenec (it can be named “Chata pod Náružím” as well). The cabin is oped only in the summer time and during the weekends. The path from the cabin joins the same way dawn at the wooden shelter again.
