Circle: YES, Marking: partialy marked

This trip starts in Dolní Adršpach by the hotel Skalní Město and continues through an entrance with a small entrance fee to enter the rock city. A part of the trip leads along the touristic circle through Adršpach Rocks and follows the green track. The path splits a few meters after the entrance and we recommend to make about 50m long detour to the flooded sand-pit. It is possible to go around the sand-pit or return back and continue with the tour or the rock city. There are many interesting rock formations with comfortable paths leading around. After a while the green track leaves the comfortable path and it goes between the rock massives where it continues on wooden paths made above a little river. It continues all the way to Malé Skalní Náměstíčko (Small Rock Square) with a bust of J.W.Goethe, a cave and the biggest waterfall of the area. At this place the trip switches to the yellow track and over the crossroad Vlčí Rokle continues to U Ozvěny where it switches to the blue track leading to Střmenské Podhradí from where it goes to Dolní Adršpach by the red track.

 Dolní Adršpach - Recreational village in the valley of the river Metuje, the main starting point for visiting the Adrspach Rock Town. Adrspach Rock Castle was founded probably in the second half of the 13th century. The ruin of the castle is a visited place and from the most eastern rocks there is a beautiful view of a substantial part of the Adrspach rock town. The Renaissance two-storey castle with a five-pointed tower is now used for archival purposes.
 Vodopád (Waterfall) - The waterfall on the Metuji River is hidden in a rock cave, accessible by a corridor and a wooden footbridge. The waterfall flow is regulated because there is a small dam just above the waterfall.
 Vlčí rokle – crossroad. - The Vlčí Gorge Valley is one of the most valuable areas of the National Nature Reserve with preserved, woodless peat-bogs.
