Hiking trail - Broumov - Na Hvězdě

Length: 11,6 km
Dificulty: medium
Circle: NO, Marking: marked

The trip begins at the Broumov Information Center and continues by the green track along the road around several ponds Pod Novou Kolinií (Under the New Colony) to the eastern part of Křinice. At the crossroad the trip continues to the left and a few meters to the right between the houses. Next, we go along a field road directly to the woods and to a lone farmhouse called Jalovčinec. We reach the forest and continue to the left. At a slight climb we reach the forest road and continue left. About a kilometer later, the green track turns right and rises sharply up the hill to the fork below the Zaječí Rokle (Rabbit Gorge). At the top of the ravine we cross a small creek and continue on the way up out of the forest to the crossroads. From the crossroads we go to the right by the red track. We walk past interesting rock formations to the Nad Hájkovou Roklí crossroad. Further, the path leads through the rugged terrain to the southwest slopes of the walls. The road leads us to a big meadow in the middle of which is a crossroad where we turn right to the red track up to the summit of the Supí Hnízdo (Vulture Nest). Here we can climb up and gaze at the surrounding countryside. The trip continues along the red to Kovářova Rokle. Then along the plain, we head to the wide road and follow it to the Baroque chapel of the Virgin Mary and a touristic cottage Na Hvězdě.
