Cycle Route No. 25 - To the Oparenský valley and to Hradiště

Cycle route No. 25 is a relatively long route that leads through many interesting places in the Bohemian Central Highlands.

Start your cycling trip in Lovosice from where you follow the alternative route of the Elbe Trail 2A and ride to the ferry to Malé Žernosky. Here you will join the cycle route No. 25, which leads to the Oparenský valley. In the picturesque valley you can have a refreshment in the Černodolski mill and continue along cycle route No. 25 to the foot of Lovoš via the village of Oparno. From Oparno, the route then leads through Režný Újezd under the Boreč and Košťálov hills and past the ruins of Skalka Castle. And then to the second highest mountain of the Bohemian Central Highlands - Hradišťany. But the route does not end here either and continues on to Most and from there to the Ore Mountains. This is a long and demanding cycling route. Our trip turns off at Hradišťany and heads along cycle route No. 3119 to Třebívlice, where you can board the Plum Railway train that will take you back to Lovosice.

If 40 km is not enough for you, you can go back to Lovosice on your own thanks to cycle routes No. 3119 and 3118, which lead through Lkáň, Třebenice, Úpohlavy and Sulejovice to Lovosice. You can also make several detours along the route and visit other beautiful places. For example, we drove up to Holý vrch above the village of Sutom.

Trip length: 40 km; Climb: 870 m, Descent: 750 m

Route: Lovosice - Malé Žernoseky - Oparenské údolí - Oparno - Rezný Újezd - Sutom - Vlastislav - Hradišťany - Dřevce - Skalice - Třebívlice - to Lovosice along the Plum Track.
