Rock lookout above Smržovka
On the rock above the town of Smržovka in the Jizera Mountains, directly above the railway station, the rock lookout Finkův kámen rises. It is named after the Smržov industrialist Finke, who greatly contributed to the development of the town.
From the viewpoint, you can enjoy the view of the Jizera Mountains and the western Giant Mountains.
In about a quarter of an hour's walk from the railway station in Smržovka, you can climb to an interesting rock lookout over the town.
The rock wall is about 30 meters high and you can climb it by means of steps secured by a handrail.

View of Smržovka

View of Tanvaldský Špičák
Tanvaldský Špičák and in the distance Harrachov and the western Giant Mountains can be seen beautifully in the eastern direction.
There are several rock bowls on the platform below the top of the rock. The emergence of these geomorphological phenomena is surrounded by several local legends about supernatural forces. But the fact is that these phenomena arose gradually over the ages by the natural action of water, frost and wind. There are many similar „rock pots“ in various places in the Jizera Mountains.
Under the rock overhang is the largest rock bowl called Čertova studánka. It is permanently filled with water and has a diameter of 130 centimeters and a depth of half a meter.
