near Utociste, Ústecký kraj (Czechia)
Trail starts from Klasterec n. Ohri, where you can visit castle and its garden. From there, slight uphill trail goes to Medenec with the moderate uphill at its second part. Don't miss Sphinx (Sfingy) rocks with beautiful views.
Near Medenec city, there is Mednik hill. The old medieval Mednik mines along with another 33 mine sites in Ore mountains were added to the UNESCO heritage list. You can see two old medieval mines. Stola Marie Pomocne (Mariahilf) mine is open for visitors (a picture with opening hours and prices is attached here). The second old mine Stola Zeme zaslibena is closed for visitors as of 2020.
Near Mednik hill there is also old contemporary mine. It was supposed to be closed for visitors - from blue trail there is "No entrance" sign, but from the train station it was quite accessible without any signs and no fences. But probably it is not allowed and the entry is at your own risk
The rest of trail goes to Kovarska city.
