On the second day the roads have more differences in height and start swinging more. You pass several old quarries and along the granite rock formation Drakenrots (Dračí skála). Then you cycle past the vast peat area and the mysterious Wolvenheuvel (Vlcineč), which according to legend hides a big treasure. After a long descent you come to a hamlet with the name Pstruzi. You can choose between a more difficult route along Plešivec mountain (steep climb!) Or the easier route along Merklín.
The mountain Plešivec is 1028 meters high. After the steep ascent you have a magnificent view over the Erzgebirge from the observation tower. After a refreshment at the restaurant on the mountain follows a long descent to Nové Mesto (Jachymov) where you spend the night.

Do you choose the route via the town of Merklín? Then you cycle around the Plešivec mountain through a beautiful valley until Nové Mesto (Jachymov).
