Hruboskalsko competes with Prachov rocks for the most popular tourist rock town in the Bohemian Paradise. You can admire here beautiful panoramas not only of interesting rock formations, but also distant views of Kozákov ridge (“Kozákovský hřeben”), Giant Mountains (“Krkonoše”) and Ještěd. Except for it there is also nice castle Hrubá Skála, castle Valdštejn (“Wallenstein”) and interesting Kopic farm (“Kopicův statek”) and a short way from here also reliefs in sandstone rocks. It is possible to combine here easy hiking circuits suitable also for small children with more difficult ones, where you can expect hundreds of stairs in the center of the rock town.

The route of the most beautiful circuit around Hruboskalsko

From the car park at castle Hrubá Skála walk down through the mouse hole into a shadowy valley beneath the Dragon´s rocks and from there set out to Adam's bed (“Adamovo lože”). From the signpost then along the yellow trail through beautiful Marian outlook (“Mariánská vyhlídka”) to Anton spring (“Antonínův pramen”). From there already along the blue trail through the interior of Hruboskalsko to John's outlook (“Janova vyhlídka”). You will then join the main red trail and walk back through the amazing Outlook of the Band (“Vyhlídka na Kapelu”).
