JizerskéMountains
Exploring nature
without barriers
Do you like to bike and also
to explore newplaces?
Would you like to spend
some time in naturewith
a baby in a pram? Does your
group include someone
who uses awheelchair?
In the JizerskéMountains,
there is ideal terrain for prams
andwheelchairs alike.
This minor mountain range
in North Bohemia
is a popular destination for
biking enthusiasts. But not
just for them. Anyone who
is either addicted to wheels
or dependent on them can
enjoy a full-fledged mountain
experience. The Jizerské
Mountains offer a sufficient
number of paths with smooth
surfaces suitable either for
long trips pushing a pram or
for those using a wheelchair
or hand bike.
There are about two dozen
trails appropriate for baby
prams and wheelchairs,
ranging from 5 to 25 km in
length. They typically have
mild uphill and downhill
gradients, and along the
trails you will find barrier-
free restaurants, kiosks and
toilets. Only here will you
find trails marked with
a wheelchair pictogram,
which will keep you going in
the right direction.
Tips for
your trips
Jizerka settlement
This former glassmaking
settlement is the heart of the
Jizerské Mountains and is
also the Czech municipality
with the highest elevation.
Here you will find beautiful
folk architecture and plenty
of rustic guest houses where
you you can have a meal or
stay overnight. It is accessible
by car or bike and also on
foot, following the nature trail
leading from Smědava past
a forest moorland.
Královka lookout
tower to Kristiánov
An attractive path for walking
or cycling. We recommend
starting with a climb to the
top of the Královka lookout
tower, a stop at the Nová
Louka chalet restaurant, and
continuing on to the village
of Kristiánov, where there is
a glassmakers’ monument.
The forest trail leads past the
small and romantic Blatný
Pond.
Ještěd
Ještěd Mountain, which you
can reach either by car or
cableway, rises above the city
of Liberec. At the top, there
is a hotel with a restaurant
in a building renowned for
its unique architectural
design and offering fantastic
views. If you have an
adventurous spirit, you can
ride a mountain bike down
the newly built “La Spaghetta”
path.
Nová Hřebenovka
(New Crest) cycle path
A long-distance path along
the mountain crest from
Harrachov to the settlement
of Jizerka, and from there
forking off either to Hrádek
nad Nisou via Bedřichov or
to the Ještěd crest. One-way
bike-hire service is available
along the trail, operating on
the principle of pick up and
drop off at different locations.
Singltrek Nové Město
pod Smrkem
If you are a heart-and-soul
cyclist, try the new 65-km
network of natural mountain-
bike trails below Smrk, the
highest peak of the Jizerské
Mountains.

In the close vicinity of the
Jizerské Mountains there
are two architectural pearls
which are definitely worth
seeing: the monumental
Baroque basilica and
monastery in Hejnice and
the Frýdlant Chateau,

the original Gothic castle
with a Renaissance
chateau.
