The basic, 6-kilometre-long hiking round route will take you through the most interesting sights of the area.
Not far from there is another rock town. It is reached via the small town of Adršpach, where one can find a wide range of accommodation, together with an information centre. The area attracts many visitors and it can become very busy, especially in summer.
