Plešivec (477 m above sea level) is definitely not one of the high peaks of the Bohemian Central Mountains. But it is an amazing view of the entire western part of this mountain range and far south to the region around the river Ohře. The top is bare overgrown with protected plants. The ascent to the hill is possible either from the village Vlastislav or Děkovka

The first view of the highlands

We start in Vlastislav, from where we ascend after the red tourist sign after a while from the valley of the river Modla between the fields to a nice view not only of Milešovka

View of Plešivec

The road only gradually climbs between the fields and in front of you you can see the destination of this short ascent – the Plešivec hill. The hill itself is located in the middle of a fenced field, so there is only one road leading to it

Wide views

You are not even at the top of the hill yet and you already have wide views in all directions. Looking back you can see the narrow and high castle tower Skalka. Further east is another ruin Košťál. To the northwest is the mighty Leipzig Mountain. To the south, the Vršetín hill is half-destroyed by a quarry

View of Hazmburk

The road continues to climb to a wide saddle between Plešivec and Třešňovka. Sheep graze on the slopes of Třešnovka and is largely enclosed by a fence. From the grassy saddle there is a nice view of Hazmburk

Final ascent to Plešivec

The path disappears into the forest for a while to lead along the field fences. Finally, you get to a place where there is a ladder over the fence with the information that you can only move on the exit path to the top. After a few tens of meters of ascent, you will reach a sunny ridge overgrown with blooming flowers and lots of butterflies and various beetles – beauty!

The ideal continuation of this trip is to go further west towards the ruins of the Oltářík castle
