What’s unique about
theCzechmountains
and something they all have
in common? That youwill
always be able to find your
way! You can roamthrough
the picturesqueCzech
mountain landscape
with absolutely
no fear of getting lost.
Every trail is assigned its own
colour – blue, red, yellow,
green. Where paths cross,
you simply follow the colour
blaze belonging to your trail.
The paths are designated
on hiking maps in the same
colours. The Czech Hiking
Club takes excellent care
of the dense network of trail
blazes. There are so many
of them – on trees, rocks and
other objects – that the next
one will usually be visible
from the one you’re
standing at.
At trail crossings and other
important places, you will
find signposts pointing you
towards your next destination
and stating the number of
kilometres until you reach it.
And don’t worry: In the
Czech mountains you won’t
come across any dangerous
wild animals. The only – and
very rare – exception is the
occasional bear that may stray
into the deep forests of the
Beskydy Mountains along the
Slovak border. However, the
chance of meeting a bear is
practically nil.
