Along the Zemská brána nature trail

Zemská brána nature trail: hiking in the footsteps of lumberjacks and smugglers

Visit a popular tourist destination in the Orlické Mountains – the nature reserve Zemská brána (meaning Earth’s Gate), which offers a remarkable environment of forests and rocks along the Divoká Orlice River. The 3-kilometre Zemská brána nature trail with 22 stops begins at a stone bridge from the beginning of the 20th century, right at the mouth of the valley. Follow the blue trail to get from one end of the Pašerácká lávka (Smugglers’ Footbridge) to the other, and then you can continue on further – to the site of the Lusthaus hunting lodge. Behind the bridge you can see the reinforced concrete walls of a cabin that was part of the country’s line of defence fortifications. Also noteworthy is Ledříčková Rock with a cave.
