Hikers

The small village of Tužín lies in the vicinity of the stream of the same name on the border of the Jičín Hills, the Kozákov ridge and the Krkonoše foothills. There are even two tourist routes crossing here, yet it is a very quiet place where you do not interfere with the tourist. In addition, our circuit mostly leads outside these marked trails

Chapel of the Guardian Angel in Tužín

A blind road leads to Tužín from Radima, located just east of Jičín. We will come to the chapel of the Guardian Angel, where there are 1–2 places to park

Crossroads at the Cross of the Virgin Mary

Cottage above Tužín

After another hundred meters we leave the road and start to climb the grassy slope (this part may not be permeable all year round). We have a forest on the left and in front of us there is a strange building in a draw

Views of Kumburk

The closer we get to the top of the flat plateau, the more the view of the highest hill with the ruins of Kumburk opens up. There are an extreme number of possessions in the area, so watch out for hunters not to confuse you with a pig

Na Vrších (431m asl)

If the field is passable, it is worth reaching the highest elevation of this circuit – Na Vrších (431 m above sea level), Thanks to the sitting area we have such a small lookout tower

Views from the top

The views from the top are wide in all directions and quite nice. The camp can also be seen. Down in the valley lies the Úbislavický church

Overgrown cross

We will come to a crossroads at another cross, which is quite overgrown, and now we will descend along a forest road to the valley of the Tužín brook. Pay attention to the path because even thanks to lumberjacks it can be damaged in some sections. Anyway, even if you're lost – you just have to go down to the creek.

After descending into the valley, you will join a wide path, which is marked in blue. After a while, you will also meet a well in the soul. At the very end of the forest you will come across a nice mill building

Return through the picturesque Tužín valley

Now we have only the last kilometer of the journey through the picturesque sunny Tužín valley. There are several old log cabins and new recreational buildings on the slopes above the valley
