Hruboskalsko

The Hruboskalsko educational trail is located in one of the most popular areas of what is known as the 'Bohemian Paradise' (Český ráj), in the "Town of Rocks" that forms part of the greater "Hrubá skála" area to the southeast of Turnov.

This, the largest sandstone formation in the Bohemian Paradise, known among climbers as The Rock (Skalák), lies within the UNESCO Global Geopark of Bohemian Paradise. The trail begins near Lázně Sedmihorky, whence it rises through the Town of Rocks, passing through the best-known spots within Hruboskalsko, to the scenic lookout points atop the rock pillars, before it returns to Sedmihorky.

On the 7.5 km circuit, one comes across 16 refurbished educational panels, which speak to the multitudes of visitors with the aim of sparking their interest in the natural world. And there is plenty to see indeed, judging not only from the omnipresent rock formations, but also from the variety of rare species of plant and animal wildlife that can be found here.

If you decide to the walk this educational trail, you will see the most interesting nooks and crannies, and experience the rock towers and pillars both at their massive base and from the top, where lookout points offer grand and scenic views. The info panels are a piece of beautiful artwork, embellished with illustrations by academy-trained painter and graphic artist Vlasta Matoušová, providing you with all of the relevant information about the scenery around you.

This trail was refurbished by the Bukovina chapter of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation, thanks to the financial support extended by the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme in 2016.
