Trail description

This trail begins in the village of Lidečko in front of a rail bridge at the turn-off to the village of Pulčín. The gorge of the Pulčínský brook, a long and adventurous one, starts right behind the bridge. The beginning of the trail might be a little difficult because of logging but it is still worth it to walk right by the brook. After about a kilometre the trail leads only in the woods. This area is rocky, so you will find many interesting stones, stone thresholds and isolated boulders in the gorge.

At the end of the brook, it is possible to get to the ridge via several brook beds and extend the route accordingly. On the ridge the path continues to the right along the red hiking trail to one of the most beautiful places in Wallachia – the Pulčín Rocks.

The descending route first follows the red hiking trail down the rocks and then the blue hiking trail back to the valley and the parking lot.


This trail is long, so it is more suitable for a whole-day trip. The time given above does not include stops and breaks, and in this gorge there are many beautiful spots worth stopping. You will need to be in shape for this one and also do bring a good snack and some sweets, your children will appreciate it.

When returning along the blue hiking trail we recommend tasting delicious water from Plevák’s spring and Formanka spring.
