Spruce is with its 1276m the second highest mountain in the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy. As a rule, routes from three directions lead to the top, Ostravice, Čeladná Podolánek and Staré Hamer. I will describe the most accessible from Ostravice here.

Route description

From the village of Ostravice, my steps from the train station follow the red sign along the asphalt road. This is how I go to the turnoff to the cottage settlement of Skalka and continue along the Bučací brook, already along the tourist trail. The road as a whole has been rising since Ostravice and it is no different here either, I wade the Bučací brook. When it is rained after the rain. I come to a crossroads above Holubčanka. From there, a red sign leads in serpentines to the saddle of Smrk, or you can go by a shortcut that will take me to the lookout below the peak and then after a few meters to the very top of Smrk. The conservationists do not like it, but it is probably the only place in the Beskydy Mountains, where one experiences a really steep climb on about a 40 ° slope with an elevation gain of 400 m. Unfortunately, a lot of people use it, so the tooth of time on this shortcut is beginning to show a slight erosion. Thanks to this route, the local tourist is called Smrka Beskydy K2.

there are not many views at the top of Smrk, which is why crowds of tourists do not come here.
