Medium difficult MTB-trail in the western part of Krkonose Mts. On this trail, between well-known towns Harrachov and Jilemnice, are many beautiful look-out points to western Krkonose Mts. This trail has one long ascent and one short technically difficult discent from chalet Dvoracky (15% iclination) on soft ground.
Starting point is in Harrachov, the center of ski jumping in Krkonose Mts. From the center there is a trail to the western direction and further on on the main road to Jilemnice. From here there is a trail No.4 with a difficult ascent to Certova hora. From Certova Mtn. and from the path leading to chalet Dvoracky is a great panoramatic view over the western part of Krkonose. From chalet Dvoracky it is a long down hill ride to Jilemnice. The first 500m are technicaly difficult. Strong decline on a soft surface with deep slots is very demanding for the biker and the bike. The one who manages this difficult part continues easily to Rezek and further to Jilemnice.
Easier option is to use the cableway from Harrachov to Certova hora. You will save 300 high meters. The total distance is 6.1 km shorter and is manageble for everybody.
