Bicycle Paths

Today there are around forty kilometers of bicycle pathway in the region of Šluknovský promontory. They lead along public and forest roads, which have an appropriate technical state. In some parts, those trails are used for hiking, so be careful; the pedestrian always has the right of way. The network of cycleways is connected to an already existing network of trails, including those that are outside of the national park area. Just as with the touristic pathways, the bicycle paths will lead the visitors to interesting places of České Švýcarsko.
