The Golden Trail of the Bohemian Paradise is by far the most classic hike in this picturesque area. Along the way you will see the rock towns of Prachovské skály and Hruboskalsko, but also the symbol of the Bohemian Paradise – the ruins of the Trosky castle.

The starting point of the Golden Trail

Jicin or Turnov

It doesn't matter which city you start the march from, both are easily accessible by public transport and the connections between them are quite frequent. We will start in Jičín. If you don't know him, be sure to take at least a short tour.

The first stage of the Golden Trail through the Bohemian Paradise

The first stage of the march is the path to Prachovské skaly. You can set off on three different marked paths. The shortest is red (5km), where most go. But it is an uninteresting road leading all the way along the road through Holín. The most interesting is along the blue through the views of Brad and Přivýšina (7km).

Crossing of Prachovské rocks

Another part of the route leads through Prachovské skály. These are, however, paid, so if you know them and want to save, you can bypass them along the yellow and then the green hiking trail. If you go through them, which is of course the recommended option, then it's up to you whether you stay there and climb them more thoroughly or go straight (the straight section is only about 1.5 km). When expanding the circuit, count on the fact that you will still have a good portion of kilometers before you reach Turnov

From Prachovské skal to Mladějov

Across the rock castle Pařez

This stage is almost six kilometers long. From the tourist cottage you will first descend to the Pelíšek swimming pool (formerly popular, in recent years mostly overgrown with algae). From there, first through a rock valley and then along the massif to the famous rock castle Pařez. From here there is a slightly less lively journey through the forest to Mladějov (possibility of refreshments)

From Mladějov to Hrubá Skála

From Mladějov, the road continues to the beautiful Podtrosecký valley. The Podtrosecké valley is a beautiful part of the Bohemian Paradise and as such is worth a day trip. As part of the through route, it is probably the most common option to stop at Trosky Castle, then descend to the Vidlák pond and along the red long rocky valley to Hrubá skála – a total of 11 kilometers
