Absolutely gorgeous. We were glad we went in January when there were few other hikers and the ice crystals on the trees so stunning

Beautiful piece of nature
Aug 2019
If you are tired of city sightseeing, take a trip from Prague to Jičín and a few kilometers before you turn left. You will get to nature reserve Prachov Rocks. There is a payed entrance. Save your ticket as you will get a discount on access to other partner attractions in the Czech Republic, such as the Kingdom of railways or Mirakulum. As you enter, you can choose some paths, which you will lead thru the rocks. The difference is in time you need to go thru. Right by the parking is a restaurant a gift shop. Better you will get some drinks to the rocks, because when you choose the longest path it will takes about 3 hours (with 6 yers old child) and you will get thirsty. For this trip is bettr to use good trekking shoes, backpack and outdoor clothes. Walking along the green trail is a bit more physically demanding, but the reward is beautiful views of the rocks and the countryside. However, even the child can handle it. This is a place that every nature lover must see and experience.

First piece of advice - don’t stop at the first paid parking you see, keep going all the way down. If it’s full they will turn you around then go park at the further lot. We arrived at 0845 on a Sunday and were 2 of only a handful of people. We enjoyed most of our hike alone, which is why getting there early worked well. We did the 3.5km hike in about 1 hour 15 min. It would be 2 if you split off to the red or walked slower. The hike was beautiful, trail was easily marked, and it’s a well kept area. When we left around 1030 the lot was full and a few busses had already arrived.

must see / je to paráda

jak jsem si myslel, že jsem viděl už dost z hrubé skály tak jsem se spletl. určitě stojí za navštívění a dát si zelený naučný okruh. Nenechte se odradit vstupným. Za něco se to určitě udržovat musí. Pěkné vyhlídky a krásně značeno - spousta cest.
I se psem se dalo absolvovat.

nice location where you should definetly go.
Beatiful nature. Small fee entrance but nothing so much.
Visited with small dauther and dog. Sometimes a little bit more competitive but worthy.

Accessible, compact, close to Prague and stunning

Excellent half day hike - rock climbing fun for the whole family. Well-sign posted routes - depending on your hiking stamina you can choose between the 3,5km green loop or the 1,5km yellow loop, or do both as neither of them is very strenuous. Our 5, 7 and two 67 year old ones managed it just fine.
There are two entrances - I would recommend to park your car in the second parking by the Chata (chalet) Prachov, this gets you closer to the rocks. From the first parking (closer to the village Prachov) you need to walk about 1 km before reaching the “rock action”. Parking can get very busy, so it is better to arrive early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
You have to bring snacks and water as no refreshments sold within the park. Also beware there are no toilets. Chata (chalet) Prachov by the entrance offers decent Czech food and local beers- self service style.

Fantastic
Aug 2019 • Couples
In compare with Adrspach this is way more pleasant walking trip. It can consume more tourists and still not be overcrouded. We took 3 paths in the paid entrance and also aroundthe mountins in forests. Together it was like 16 km and it was worth the hike!

impressive
Jul 2019
we also love seeing high rock and Prachov rocks didn't let us down! You would feel impressive to see all the rocks there by your own eyes! Staircases are not easy to climb but it was ok for us. We get used to walk a lot normally.
all photos taken there would be amazing!

Easily accessible with great views

We drove to the paid parking and went on the 'longer' route (3,5km). Because of the different viewpoints the trip will definately be longer than 3,5 km. During the hike there were a lot of great viewpoints!
