Doubrava Valley

Route description:

Embark on a captivating excursion from Chotěboř past the Koukalky lookout rock formations, to the deep, rocky valley of the Doubrava River, which is the most valuable territory in the southern part of the Železné hory Mountains Protected Landscape Area. Chotěboř lies in the beautiful and ecologically-pristine environment of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands, in the north of the region of the Havlíčkův Brod district. The narrow, steep canyon of the Doubrava River is a miniature of the massive canyons found in other places around the world. A moderately-difficult educational trail runs parallel with the red tourist route, and will introduce you to a number of interesting geomorphic phenomena, and typical flora and fauna. The only cliff tower, called “Čertův stolek” (“The Devil’s Table”) stretches tall above the tops of the spruce trees. The hiking route will take you to the tallest rock formation, “Sokolohrady,” at the top of which you will find a man-made viewpoint. If you want to enrich your exploration of the local natural landscape with some culture, you can visit the Městské muzeum Chotěboř (Chotěboř Municipal Museum), which is located in a section of the local château.
