The centre of Pec pod Sněžkou - Velká pláň - Chaloupky - Malá pláň - The centre of Pec pod Sněžkou

The starting point can be found at the square by Hospoda na Peci (The Kiln Tavern). You will be led by wooden signposts Okolo Pece (Around Pec). You can look forward to unique vistas from lately renewed forest footpaths and charming, secluded nooks. The wayside information panels show some valuable information on the history of the mountain townlet. Short quatro-lingual texts detail the establishment of the one-time mining and lumber camp village, also give information on the foundation of the post-office, school, forestry office, waterworks for the whole town and the uniqueness of the local mountain meadows.

The most popular place is the relaxing point by the Column Chapel and a Pilgrim near the meadow enclave Chaloupky, the most peaceful is then the observation point U Kamoru just before the meadow enclave Hnědý vrch (Brown Hill), where the renewed chapel of St. Barbara is located.

The circuit or its parts are suitable for a rest on benches midway through the walk, so elderly people can appreciate the track. If you are not ready to go home at the end of the hike, you can add walking trails Vlčí jáma (Wolf Gorge) and Zelený důl (Green Valley).
