The route leads past adrenaline-pumping trails for off-road bikes! Careful!

The Rysi skala Nature Trail begins at the lookout tower. It leads through a beautiful forest that weaves roots and stones. You will come out along the road, at the signpost Tetrevi chata. Here you will continue across the road, again into the forest.

Why is it called the Stray Lynx Trail?

The nature trail is based on the story of a stray lynx with its cubs, who find shelter at the top of Medvedi hora. The story, which features forest elves, fairy-tale creatures and the ruler of the Praded mountains, is told in a comic book form on boards at each stop with information about the surrounding nature.

After a short walk, you will appear at two shelters where you can rest. A little further, behind the shelter, is the Rysi skala, from which, in beautiful weather, there is a beautiful view of Praded and Dlouhe strane.

Then the path will take you through the forest, partly along a rocky route. You will go downhill, so it is not a difficult route.

On the way back, you can either choose the cable car again or go down the hill to Kouty nad Desnou.
