Tips on the path

The route of the educational trail “Děvín” leads through the national nature reserve Děvín-Kotel-Soutěska. The information panels along the trail will acquaint you with the flora and fauna of thermophilic oak woods, rocky steppes, scree forests, cliffs and rocky slopes, and grassy and meadow steppes. The trail also considers the history of Děvičky Castle and the overall progression of the settlement of the locality, as well as the geological and geomorphological structure of the Pavlov Hills. The trail is comprised of three interlinking circuits with a number of diversions to information panels located away from the main route. You do not have to visit these panels in numerical order. If you are planning to walk the entire trail, make sure you leave yourself plenty of time, as it may take between four and six hours.
