What a wonderful place for trekking! Well marked paths, interesting nature and impressive views. We walked yellow path to Hrad Valdjstein which goes on upper level with marvelous lookout points, and took blue path back which leads you down to rock city. The blue one...More

We took the red trail, a 6km hike one way from Turnov to Hrubá Skala. It is very uphill for the first kilometer, but once you reach the top, it is a beautiful and flattish walk with excellent views of the Bohemian countryside, and, once...More

We went to several rock formations in the area and this is the most famous one. But in our opinion not the most beautiful of all. It is still amazing offcourse. And it has a few little stands with drinks, ice cream and little souvenirs.

Nice day trip of walks. Several well signposted options and good map available from the car parks. Rock formations great for kids to explore and nice shaded woods for hot days. Definitely worth a day out

I only found a very crude regional map that was not very helpful. Cesky Raj is really a series of separate sights quite spread out. For example, there is a good trail from Turnov that follows the ridge towards Hruba Skala... More
