Trail of the Eagles' Nests is a tourist route in Poland with the length of 169 km. It is one of the most interesting tourist routes in Poland. It runs through Lesser Poland and Silesian Province. Its name comes from the ruins of castles and strongholds lying on its route, called Eagle Nests, due to their location on rocks reaching up to 30 m of height.

The castles date mostly to the 14th century, and were constructed by the order of King of Poland Kazimierz the Great. They have been named the "Eagles' Nests", as most of them are located on large, tall rocks of the Polish Jura Chain featuring many limestone cliffs, monadnocks and valleys below. They were built along the 14th-century border of Lesser Poland with the province of Silesia, which at that time belonged to the Kingdom of Bohemia. The trail has 25 castles and watchtowers. Most of them can be reached with a motorbike.

Part 4 takes you from Olkusz to Krakow and following castles are on this route:

1. Pieskowa Skala Castle (waypoint 1)
2. Ojcow Castle (waypoint 2)
3. Korzkiew Castle (waypoint 3)
