Hikers

To the east of Křižánky there are wooded hills whose peaks are decorated, so typical for the Vysočina region, with massive rocks. It offers a nice circuit just over two rocky hills – Milovské Perníčky and Čtyři palice

Climbing the Crusaders

The start and finish of this sightseeing tour is in Křižánky. We set off slowly along the nature trail „Za pilnikáři na Český kopec“ around the picturesque cottages. Looking back, on the other side of the Svratka River, we see the center of the town and on the horizon a massif stretching from the Nine Rocks

Road along the Czech Hill

The dirt road rises slightly along the slope of Český kopec (711 m above sea level). There are fences on both roads, so if you would like to take a walk to the top of this hill, you have to climb it somewhere.

Views from the Czech Hill

The views from Český kopce to the Svratka valley are really very nice and wide. If you only need a short walk, the route Křižánky – Český kopec and back is also worth it

Cottages under the Czech Hill

From the lookout, almost 700 meters above sea level, we can easily descend to several cottages with a newly built pond. Behind them, the road disappears in the forest

Milovské gingerbread - Mound

It is only a few tens of meters from the cottages to the intersection with the bike path. After it, we will enter a crossroads, where we will connect to the blue hiking trail. This will take us to the rock formations of Milovská Perníčka. The first to appear is the Mohyla formation, which can also be climbed and admired with a limited view down into the valley

Four sticks - view point

The formation itself is interesting and quite large – but the views are quite limited

Exit from the forest

Now we have a pretty steep descent. Once again we come across a bike path that we have already passed once today. But we will follow it only for a while before the blue sign turns to take us out of the forest after a while
