The Most Beautiful Trail in the Prachov rocks
The most beautiful circuit in Prachovské skály (“Prachov rocks”) leads you through the biggest attractions that you can see here. The first time you hold your breath when you come to „square“ Zadní Točenice surrounded by rock needles. Then you ascent in narrow Myší díra, two romantic prospect of Peace and Bohemian Paradise and finally awaits you famous gorge Císařská chodba
Prachovska Capka and Jehla (“Prachov Cap
The ideal starting point for the most interesting main circuit is the tourist hut practically in the middle of Prachov rocks. There are limited places in the car park, so in the main season it is ideal to arrive early or late in the afternoon. Set out along the red tourist trail (along with yellow, green and blue) to the east. The first view of the rock towers will open after only a few dozen of meters. Prachovska Capka and Jehla look from the bottom as little cuckold.
Indian summer in the Prachov rocks
In a moment you will have a nice isolated small rock on your left. Very nice period for visit is Indian summer. There are not many visitors and local beeches are beautifully golden brown colored.
In front of Zadni Tocenice
After less than a kilometer walk you get to a wider area of Zadni Tocenice, where is the first major crossroads. This fabulous place was not very impressive even a few years ago, because it was hidden behind the trees that had to be cut down after the windbreak in 2009. Now there are at least nice views of the surrounding rock towers. From Zadni Tocenice you will continue along the yellow trail Denisova path. It is also possible to turn to Masaryk path.
Denisova path - Mouse hole
Denis' path is a great experience. There is a steep staircase and a very narrow crack called the Mouse Hole. Here, more obese people do not have a chance to pass.
Denis path - Resting place and viewpoint
After leaving Mouse Hole, you will find a beautiful sightseeing place. Ideal stop before the last steep staircase
Denisova path - Last staircase
Now the last staircase is waiting for you, and after you've done it, you have the toughest part of this little circuit behind you. From the crossroads, head to the viewpoint of the Bohemian Paradise
Outlook point Cesky raj (“Czech Paradise")
Perhaps the most beautiful outlook in Prachov rocks is the outlook point Cesky raj (“Czech Paradise”). For example, if the visibility is good, you will see not only another symbol of the Czech Paradise – Trosky, but also Vysker or Strelecska Hura. However, your views will be more directed to a beautiful panorama of rock towers.
View at the beginning of Masaryk path
Directly opposite you are clearly visible steep stairs, which are used to ascent into the rocks on the Long circuit.
Prachovska Jehla (“Prachov Needle”)
From the outlook point Cesky raj is also a very nice view of Prachovska Jehla and the path to the tourist lodge.
Outlook point Mir (“Peace”)
From the viewpoint of the Bohemian Paradise, you will return to the crossroads and follow the yellow mark to the crossroads „U Buku“. From here it is only a short distance to the second famous prospect Mir (“Peace”). You are looking from here directly to the tops of the rock towers rising around Cisarska chodba.
A sea of rock towers from the Peace Viewpoint
At the Peace Viewpoint, you are really in the center of things
From the prospect of Peace we are in a moment in the mouth Cisarska chodba – the most beautiful gorge in Prachov rocks leading among the highest rock needles. It's really impressive and beautiful place.
Cisarska chodba in winter
Like other places in Prachov rocks, winter has here an interesting atmosphere. You almost do not meet here a living soul, which is very pleasant compared to the crowds during the summer holidays. But the snow may be quite icy in some places, so you need to be very careful.
Before Cisarska chodba
After you walk through the Cisarska chodba along the long staircase, you can take a look into the side valley, but there is no tourist route. Here you are just a few meters from the Zadni Točenice. After the same path you will return to the tourist hut
