Trail description

From the bus stop “Vysoké Pole, rozcestí Drnovice”, follow the asphalt road, after about 800m turn left onto a forest road and continue along it for another 800m, then you can enter the gorge.

The gorge is easy and suitable for smaller children. It is full of obstacles such as fallen trees, logs and larger or smaller boulders. If you’re observant, you might find an animal skull or bone, I found many around the gorge. A good observer will easily spot a hare, which has almost overpopulated in this area. The gorge is covered by mixed forests of mostly beech and spruce, which offer shelter from the sun on hot days. Towards the end of the gorge, it gets steeper, watch out for the slopes sliding down and little rocks falling.

From the source of the Vysokopolský Stream you can go to the top of Klášt’ov, which is about 400m away – it is the highest peak of the Vizovice Hills. At the very top you can find the rock formation “Devil’s Stone”, which was supposedly dropped by the devil when he was in a hurry to carry stones to Lidečko village and complete the local rocks before the crowing of the rooster. On one of the stones, you can see the imprint of an arm, a head and a hoof. Or you can look at the remains of the hillfort, which have been preserved since prehistoric times! Over 700 iron and metal objects have been found here. This place is shrouded in many legends, one of which says that there was once a wooden castle here, whose owner is said to have buried his huge treasure in the ground. The locals tried to find it, but were prevented from doing so by snakes, scorpions, wild bulls and magical guard dogs.

From the top of Klášt’ov, follow the green hiking trail to the crossroads “Rozcestí pod Suchým vrchem”, from there continue back along the yellow hiking trail. Along the way there are many natural wells to refresh you and if you have time, you can stop at the chapel of St. Francis or the chapel of Our Lady of Vysocká, which lies a little further down. Not far from this chapel there is a natural well that was once considered a healing spring and now has a small “water” chapel next to it. In the past, mothers used to hang their children’s shirts on a sturdy pear tree as a thank you for the healing of their children. Before you reach the end of the trail, you will have a chance to see a bird observatory, a holy picture or a bell tower.


It is possible to prolong your trip and return via the second source of the Vysokopolský Stream, it is also a nice walk.
