Hike Vidlák - Krčák - Trosky

The hike from Vidlák to Trosky around the Krčák pond is relatively short, because it leads along the road and so most tourists climb the red-marked path through the forest. You will meet mainly cyclists or families with a pram. The advantage over the marked route, which is not very interesting is the view of the beautiful pond Krčák and centuries-old oaks in its vicinity.

Vidlák pond during the year

From the refreshments at the Vidlák crossroads, head along the dam of the pond. The view from here is absolutely magnificent. Here, too, is the most beautiful time in the old lady's summer. From here, the hiking trail climbs up into the forest. However, we will continue on the road.

Wetlands in the north of the pond

From the beginning, the roads lead around the wetlands on the north side of the pond, which after a few hundred meters finally turn into water.

Krčák in full beauty

Sandstone rocks also rise from Krčák, but it is not as picturesque as the Věžický pond or the Obora pond.

Rocks in the shade

Most of the day the local rocks are in the shade. Usually in the morning you will have them lit by the sun

Massive oaks by the pond

Next to the pond is a meadow lined with an alley of beautiful century-old oak trees. Just behind the road are other massive rocks. Picturesque place for a picnic.

Swans on Krčák

The pond is also popular with swans, so there are quite a lot of them to see.

Road to Troskovice

From the pond, the picturesque road rises quite steeply. He also has to take a hundred meters to Troskovice. Usually there is more traffic from cyclists than cars, but the road is narrow, so be careful, especially when going with children.
