Tanvaldský Špičák (810 m above sea level) is a significant dominant of the southern part of the Jizera Mountains. Several hiking trails lead to the top. The easiest is from Albrechtice in the Jizera Mountains, from where it has only 1.4 km to the top and only 180 meters of altitude awaits you. You can go back the same way or then run down the shortcut along the piste. The top views are definitely worth a hike

Albrechtice in the Jizera Mountains

The ascent to Tanvaldský Špičák basically starts at the eastern end of Albrechtice in the Jizera Mountains (just a few meters from the bus stop).

Ascent path to Tanvaldský Špičák

The ascent route itself is not so interesting – you climb through the forest, a short time along the way, a short time along the road used to supply the mountain hut at the top. A few hundred meters below the top, a hiking trail leading from Tanvald joins. Just before the top it is more interesting, in the forest there are several boulders and rocks

The first view

The first view is just before the top at the first slope. From here you can see the opposite Světlý vrch and on the horizon the ridges of the Jizera Mountains

The peak of Tanvaldský Špičák

After about a 20-minute brisk walk from Albrechtice, you will reach the very top of Tanvaldský Špičák. Apart from the lookout tower and the inn, there is also a cable car station and it looks a bit looted thanks to all those slopes and columns. But the view is really worth it.

Not far from the top is a nice lookout rock accessible by an iron ladder

Descent down the piste

If you do not want to return the same way through the forest and you want to enjoy a few more views, it is better to go down the slope

Cemetery in Albrechtice

About 150 meters before the end of the ski slope, turn right and follow the forest road to the interesting cemetery in Albrechtice. Apart from the church, Schowank's tomb is also a dominant feature here. From here it is only a few hundred meters through the city to the starting point of the tour
