Probably the most classic short hike in the Podtrosecký valley is the path from Věžický rybník to Vidlák. You will see the local picturesque ponds and rock sandstone walls towering from them. The most beautiful time to visit is the old lady's summer, when the local deciduous trees are full of all colors.

Turret during the year

For most visitors, the start of this tour is in the parking lot at the crossroads Věžický rybník – on the road from Libošovice to Hrubá Skála. There are also several hiking trails and a bike path, so you will meet a lot of people in the season. Right after a few meters walk with the evu opens the first beautiful view of the pond. It is beautiful all year round. Nice photos are taken at this place in the late afternoon.

The most beautiful view of the Tower

One of the most beautiful views of the pond is right at the beginning, so there is no place to hurry on this hike.

Sightseeing massif

On the other side of the pond, a photogenic rock massif connects to the dam. A „secret“ path leads through it with beautiful views of the pond from the hill, see. „Túra nad Věžákem“: https: //www.gigapla­ces.com/clanek-tura-nad-vezakem/

On the way along the cottages

After a while you will pass a few houses. There are willows on these shores of the pond, so depending on the season there are / are not other nice views of the pond.

Statue of a woman in the Podtrosecky valley

At the very end of the settlement is this interesting statue of a woman under a rock wall.

Observation massif II.

From the statue you dive a few tens of meters into the forest. On the other side, the second rock massif peeks out. It is also a nice view from it if you go on the other, more adventurous side of the pond.

Picturesque meadows from Podtrosecké

From the forest you exit to the picturesque meadows of Podtrosecké. A little further is a small beach, so you can swim here in the summer.

Long view of the pond

At the end of the meadow, the pond turns and thanks to that it is the longest view of it. It is less than a kilometer from the parking lot. If you are planning a short walk, you can turn around here. You've seen the most interesting thing.

Cottages in the forest

Then you will come across a rich spring of drinking water and then the path continues along the forest, where there are several cottages on the slopes. Quite a romantic place not to be the crowds of tourists here.

Large meadow at the crossroads

The pond ends and a wide meadow opens, where there is now a pasture for sheep. The 4010 cycle path in the direction of Trosky and after a while the red tourist route in the direction of Hrubá Skála turns off. Subsequently, the footpath in the direction of Želejov. So there are plenty of options for further action. However, we continue further towards Věžák.

Rock massif with a cave

An interesting place, especially for children, is a rock with a small cave. In addition, the entire rock can be surrounded by a narrow gap. Expect a delay here if you go with the children.

View of Krčák

The path continues along the edge of the forest and you often cross the roots. A more demanding passage for cyclists and families with prams. Then the only small hill awaits you on this road near another cottage settlement and you descend to the Krčák pond. From here it is only a short walk to refreshments, a large parking lot and a crossroads at the dam of the Vidlák pond.
