Footpaths in the Beskid Foothills

Visit the Beskydy/Beskid Protected Landscape Area to find rare plants and animals, as well as outstanding cultural monuments. But even if you stay on the periphery of the area, you'll find sites that are well worth a visit. A great place for a walk, for example, can be found in Kunčice pod Ondřejníkem: the educational trail "Chodníčky" (Footpaths) in the Beskid Foothills. Among other things, visitors are enchanted by the restored headwater pool. Aside from the fresh air and the beautiful views, the site offers refuge to numerous rare animal and plant species, among them rare orchids, such as the Lesser Butterfly-Orchid.

The educational trail reveals the names of all major peaks in the area to the inquisitive hiker, familiarises them with the inhabitants of water and forest, and makes them aware of the issues that the Beskid Foothills face today. It was built by the ČSOP in 2008 with the support of the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme.
