The former mining town of Horní Blatná is situated at an intersection of cross-country skiing routes connecting Pernink, Bludná, Potůčky and Jelení, which means that you can easily get to Horní Blatná on a ski trail from any direction. A traditional and very popular route leads from Horní Blatná to the southwest in the direction of Bučinská cesta (Bučina Trail) and the Ore Mountains Main Cross-Country Skiing Route and via Korce to Jelení and to Henneberg in Germany.
