Geocache Description:

Vodopady Studeneho potoka
Vodopady Studeneho potoka vznikaji soutokem Velkeho Studeneho potoka s Malym Studenym potokem.
Na useku od paseky Kamzik v tesné blizkosti Rainerovy chaty ve Velke studene doline az po svah pod Bilíkovou chatou proteka Studeny potok vyraznym terennim zlomem a vytvari rozmanite kaskady, ktere jsou zvlast pusobive pri vysoke hladine vody po jarnim tani nebo po vydatnych destich. Zde se ve smeru toku nachazi komplex malych i vetsich vodopadu, pro nez je zvykem pouzivat souhrnny (ale nespravny) nazev Studenovodske vodopady.

Tam, kde horska bystrina zaciná tect uz pod nazvem Studeny potok, nachazi se Maly vodopad (1276 m n.m.), ktery prekonava 18 metrovy vyskovy rozdil. Pod nim do hloubi pada 5 metrovy Skryty vodopad a jeste nize Velky vodopad s nejvyssi kaskadou 13 metrovou. Posledni je Dlouhy vodopad, koncici  ve vysce 1153 metru nad morem.

Podlozi Studeneho potoka je tvoreno granodiority a jde o potok ledovcoveho puvodu. Geneticky jde o kaskadu vodopadu ruzne vysky v dolni casti glacialniho prahu.

Vodopady Studeneho potoka jsou velmi atraktivni pro turisty, kteri se semostanou turistickymi cestami ze tri smeru: z Tatranske Lesne, Tatranske Lomnice a Stareho Smokovce.  Nejlepsi pristup je ze strediska Hrebienok po zelene nebo cervene znacce okolo Bilíkovy chaty. Cesta trva priblizne 20 minut. Vodopady jsou pristupne v prubehu celeho roku.

The Cold creek waterfalls

Started with the confluence of the Great Cold with a Small creek with a cool stream.
In the area of forest clearings in the near Chamois Rainer cottage in Great Cold Valley and the hills below the Bilíkova hut Cold creek flows through the expressive terrain break and creates multiple cascades, which are particularly impressive when high water levels after the spring thaw or after strong rains. Here, in the direction of flow is a complex of smaller and larger waterfalls for which it is customary to use the general (but incorrectly) the name of the Coldwater  waterfalls.

Where mountain streams flow starts already under the title Cold creek, located a small waterfall (1276 m asl), which overcomes 18-meter height difference. Beneath him the depths of 5 meter fallsHidden waterfall and even below the highest waterfall The Big 13 meters cascade. The last waterfall is long, ending at an altitude of 1153 meters above sea level.

Basement Cold Creek consists of granodiorites and on a glacial stream. Genetically terms of a cascade of waterfalls of different heights in the bottom of the glacial shelf.

Cold Creek Waterfalls are very attractive for tourists coming here to get tourist routes from three directions: from Tatranske Lesne, Tatranska Lomnica and Stary Smokovec.

The best approach is from the center Hrebienok the green or red markings around Bilíkova hut. The journey takes about 20 minutes. Waterfalls are available in throughout the year.


Your task is to send your answers to these questions on my profile.

 1) Estimate the width of the stream below the waterfall that you used with GPS.
 2) In summary Explain the term 'glacial threshold'!
 3) Carefully you can see the waterfall and stream below them (in granodiorit). Discover the natural processes operating on the creek ...

Do your log add pictures to your GPS before any of the Cold Creek watterfalls.
