The mushroom consists of about 8 m high legs and a hat with a diameter of 3 m.
Interestingly, while the foot is made of cardboard, the hat consists of sandstone.
Markušovský skalný hríb is a part of the natural monument Markušovská stena. A tourist trail leads to it from the village of Markušovce and from the village of Matejovce nad Hornádom. The hike to the mushroom is undemanding, suitable for all ages.
