Bielsko-Biała Wapienica

Pieszy, Żółty szlak turystyczny prowadzący z Bielska-Białej Wapienicy pod szczyt Szyndzielni. Malowniczy szlak górski prowadzący początkowo łagodnie doliną Wapienicy do Jeziora Wielka Łąka. Po ostrym zakręcie koło zapory wodnej im. Ignacego Mościckiego szlak stromo wspina się lasami do górnej stacji kolei linowej na Szyndzielnię. Nieopodal końca szlaku, pod szczytem Szyndzielni, znajduje się schronisko turystyczne, w których można odpocząć i posilić się. Szlak dość trudny ze względu na dużą różnicę wzniesień.
