The route begins in Desná by a rock brought here by water when the dam higher up the river busted. Over the bridge the route continues on the right bank of the river by a forest and around the former sawmill to the ruins of the busted dam. From there it climbs up to the right all the way to the hilltop and then continues to the valley of Černá Desná river. After crossing Souš Road and the river it continues to Vlašský hřeben (ridge) and through the forest to Jizerka settlement.

 Desná – Commemorating Rock – A picturesque mountain town established in the break of 16th and 17th century. There are some important cultural sights to be found in Desná such as the Riedel Villa (there is a cultural centre in the first floor as well as the town library with public internet connection, museum with a stable glassmaking history exposition). Another one of the sights is the family tomb of Riedels and the building of the town hall.
 Protržená přehrada (Busted dam) - The dam busted on 18th September 1916 only 10 months after its colaudation. There is a short educative trail which gives the information about the dam’s measurements.
 U Bunkru – Bunkers were built for protection of our borders in the 30s.
 Jizerka - Pyramida – Jizerka is a settlement with buildings spread amongst the peat-bog of Malá Jizerská louka (Small Jizera Meadow), which has been a natural reserve since 1987, and the basalt hill of Bukovec (1005 AMSL). Originally it was a mining place for precious stones later Jizerka is connected to the glassmaking activities of Riedl’s. From that time there are a few buildings left, for example the old grindery (today the Pyramida inn, mansion house and the old school building (1890) – today you can find an exhibition called the Old and New Face of the Jizera Mountains.
