Blatenský příkop Nature Trail


Category: Nature Trails Region: Krušné hory – Ore Mountains Town: Boží Dar


The nature trail of Blatenský příkop (Blatná Ditch) focuses on ecology, history, mining, forestry and former technical use of the ditch. The trail leads along this unique technical work. It starts about 1 km west of the town of Boží Dar, on the road Boží Dar – Ryžovna – Horní Blatná and ends 1 km above the town of Horní Blatná (by the third station of the nature trail Horní Blatná – Vlčí jámy). You can pick up a guide book to the popular nature trail at the Info-centre in Boží Dar.
