This is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the Giant Mountains, offering many natural beauties of the western Giant Mountains. The trail begins in Harrachov – the well-known hiking and winter sports centre – and ends at the same point. During our excursion, we have time to enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. Then we head back to Prague.
Sightseeing Trail in the Giant Mountains (6 hours)
The dominant feature of the town of Harrachov is the “mammoth” ski jump tower in the background on Čertova hora (1022 metres above sea level). You reach this mountain peak by chairlift, and then you go down through the woods along an undemanding trail to the Na Ručičkách crossroads. Then you continue climbing to Dvoračky chalet, where there is the option of a meal. This is therefore the ideal spot for a lunch break and to try some traditional Czech cuisine. After lunch, you climb steeply to the viewpoint of Harrachovy kameny (1421 m above sea level). This is the highest point on our hike, from where there is a beautiful view of the surroundings. From this viewpoint, you continue uphill to Vrbatovo návrší. There the memorial is situated to B. Hanč and V. Vrbata, who tragically died here during 1913 ski races. Besides the memorial, there is another viewpoint and also the possibility of refreshments at Vrbatova bouda chalet. After a rest, continue to the U Čtyř pánů crossroads. From there you descend gently through the forest along the Great Mumlava River. When you reach Krakonošova snídaně crossroads, there is another possibility of rest and refreshments. The last section of the trail is the descent to the Mumlava Waterfall and then back to our starting point in Harrachov.
