 Velký Štolpich Waterfall – This waterfall is one of the biggest in our country. The stream overcomes a 30m high wall and creates a several waterfalls and cascades.
 Ořešník – view point – Ořešník is a rocky outcrop of a side part of the Jizera Mountains. It rises steeply to the height of 800m above the valley of Velký Štolopich and Smědá. Until 1999 Ořešník used to be a part of the nature reserve of Štolopich, today it’s a part of a different natural reserve Jizerskohorské Bučiny (Jizera Mountain’s Beech Forests). The cross on the tops has been standing since 1813, when it was raised by Franciscans.
