The trails at Adršpach-Teplice Rocks
Guide yourself along the well-marked trails at Adrspach and pass the most incredible spots of the natural reserve. Around each corner, is a new unique, and incredible perspective of the rock labyrinth.
The rocks at Adrspach-Teplice were once at the bottom of an ocean. Over the years winds and rains eroded the rocks, giving its distinctive shape.
Tip: Bring food and water because this is not sold inside the park and plus leave no trash behind.
Main trail loop
The main trail in Adrspach is a loop of 7 km. There are some steep stairs and declining parts on the trail but nothing very intense. The hiking trail is fairly easy to follow but it is recommended wearing good shoes as it is muddy and slippery. The trail takes approximately 3 hours, including the many stops for photos.
Lake trail loop
When entering Adrspach, the first thing you’ll see is a stunning lake with clear waters. In the early morning, fog floats over the water, making it extra magical. The walk around the lake is also the first trail to follow; this is a 1.5 km loop. However, we recommend following the usual 7 km trail to see a bit of everything.
Please note: Getting off the trail is prohibited.
Lake boat ride
Halfway the main loop is a second lake where you can take a boat ride or rent a rowboat to admire the rocks from a different angle. This detour will add an extra 2 km to your total trail in Adrspach. The boat trip on the lake costs 50 CZK (2 USD).
Entrance fee & Opening times
Adrspach is a protected nature park with the local authorities keeping it clean. The entrance fee to Adrspach-Teplice Rock is 120 CZK (5 USD) in the high-season and 80 CZK (3.5 USD) in the off-season.

I really enjoyed your article on this amazing part of the world. You got some awesome photos, thank you for sharing.
It seems a little confusing when I research the available hikes in the area- am I correct in thinking there are hikes from the Adrspach end and the Teplice Rocks end of the national park? I want to see both areas, but am unsure as to whether I should spend a couple of nights in Teplice nad Metuji or if it is better to bas myself in Trutnov? Is it feasible to do two hikes in one day or would you advise spacing them over two days, as I’m sure I will be stopping often for photo opportunities?
Thanks! We’ve only done one of the hikes but would definitely recommend adding in an extra day. Trutnov is a bit better to base as it’s much more lively and has more restaurant options. I hope that helps! Enjoy.
Oh okay, thanks for that advice. Through my research I’ve discovered that the Adrspach hikes are meant to be more interesting than the Teplice Rocks one. May I ask what time of year you went please and which hike you actually did please? Thanks
Great! So we were there in August and we did the main hike of 7 km. Enjoy your time in CZ!
