If you go to the Giant Mountains for a trip to Montenegro, take a walk through the nearby peat bog. An educational trail goes around it, so you will learn some interesting things about peat bogs. Along the way, there is also a nice view of Sněžka from several places. The circuit itself is 4 km, so it can be like a trip for children or just a small part of a day trip. In some places you will feel as if you are somewhere in Scandinavia

View of Sněžka from Černá bouda

We start the walk near Černá hora, from where we slowly descend along the yellow hiking trail to the Černá bouda hotel. Here you can possibly refresh yourself and at the same time enjoy the view of Sněžka

Road to Pardubice huts

From Černá bouda it will descend first along the blue one and then along the green tourist trail in the direction of Pardubická bouda (kilometer, – 100 altitude meters). At Pardubické bud there is another possibility of refreshments and a limited view towards Podkrkonoší. Just a few meters from the cottages we disconnect from the green, enter the forest and along the stone path we continue along the nature trail

Climb the forest

The road ascends through the forest from the beginning and is not so interesting. Instead of peat, there is only blueberry around. The peat starts at an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level, where there is something like a small plateau

The northern edge of the peat bog

The walk starts to be interesting only in places where the trail starts to turn west and you walk along the northern end of the peat bog

Hubert's prospect

After a while, you will connect to the yellow hiking trail connecting Černá hora with Velká Úpa (respectively with Sněžka). Two hundred meters further is Hubert's Viewpoint – which is actually a snack table with benches and views of the highest mountains of the Giant Mountains. If there was at least a 5 meter tower, it would be significantly bet­ter

Prospects

From Huber's viewpoint, the road turns south and the circuit slowly closes. There are perhaps even nicer views from the road than from the „official“ place

View of Montenegro

From here, Montenegro looks more like a forest-covered rampart than a hill. If the transmitter had not protruded over the forest, it would not have been clear where the peak is.

Observation tower Černohorská rašelina

Just before the end of the circuit there is a turn to the lookout tower Černohorská rašelina, where you should definitely go, because it is actually the best of the whole circuit.

The best view of the Montenegrin peat bog

From the lookout tower is definitely the best view of the Montenegrin peat bog. Here you really feel like somewhere in Scandinavia. After returning back to the main route, you can return to Černá hora or continue along the red route further into the Krkonoše Mountains
