After bypassing the sand pit in Adršpach Rocks, a classic circuit awaits you along the green tourist sign with views of the most famous local rocks. If you want then continue along the yellow mark you will have to go part of the circuit twice. Thanks to the proximity of Poland, this beautiful natural attraction is always very surrounded by tourists.

From Pitcher to Sugar Loaf

The first significant rock you pass on the circuit is Džbán, but the first real attraction is the beautiful lonely rock Sugar Loaf

Tourist highway in Adršpach Rocks

From the beginning, you will feel a bit like on a promenade – the path is really wide and countless people. Who can let it visit here except weekends and summer holidays

At the Gothic Gate

Here begins one of the most beautiful passages of the whole rocks – the passage through the gorge between the huge rock blocks

About halfway through the gorge is a beautiful plot with benches – Elephant Square, where you are literally surrounded by rock giants

Krakonoš's tooth and Eliška's tower

After exiting the gorge, two more beautiful rock towers await you: Krakonoš's tooth and Eliška's tower. Then you are approaching the crossroads at the Dwarf. This first part of the circuit was very simple, still on the plain along Metuje. Now there are stairs and steps waiting for you

The Road to Lovers

A nice but more challenging way up awaits you from the U trpaslíka crossroads. There are slightly fewer people here, because a large part continues to the boats and the same way back and avoids this hilly section

Rock formation Lovers

Finally, you ascend to the view of the interesting „double rock“ Lovers. From here, a proper staircase awaits you and you descend to another valley to Řeřichova ravine

Crossroads at the Chapel

At the bottom of the valley is quite lively again. On the one hand, from here there is an „escape“ path back to the entrance to the rocks, there are several benches, so there is a refreshment place and in addition a few tens of meters next to it is a mountain chapel

Another output

What we descended a while ago, we must now ascend again. In these places, it is quite common to hear not only children, but also a lady undressed to lament directly that they will not go to the rocks in their lives.

View of the Great Cityscape

After reaching the top of the massif, a short detour awaits you to the Great Panorama viewpoint. Here it would be absolutely great if someone cut down the surrounding forest

A little further on you will get to the famous viewpoint of the Mayor and the Mayor, which are two beautiful rock towers

Under the Mouse Hole

Under the Mouse Hole is a lookout point for the surrounding rock towers. Here, too, it would be absolutely breathtaking without trees. From here, you can only travel through the forest to the beginning of the circuit

View of Křížový vrch

The path suddenly takes you to the edge of the forest from where you can see Křížový vrch. In front of you are dormitories along which people scatter who want to get to the rocks without paying. Right in this place, however, is a shelter with a guard

Rocks on the edge of the forest

The path leads along the edge of the forest before you reach the crossroads at Cukrová homola, from where it is a short walk to Pískovna and the entrance. If you want to continue further to the Teplice Rocks, you must complete the journey to the U Trpaslíka crossroads again
