This track is quite demanding and has a steep rise. It runs along a small mountain road and mostly asphalt surfaces. In good weather you will enjoy magnificent views of the Krkonose range. The track is suitable for seniors and people with walking sticks, and can be taken with baby prams and, without major limitations, also in mechanical and electric wheelchairs. The officer at the car park in Horni Misecky is authorised to issue a permit for cars to drive to Vrbatova chalet if a disability card is presented. The track begins at the car park in Horni Misecky and the first passage is marked in red. It leads via Vrbatova chalet to Labska chalet. The track length, counting both directions, is 15 km and the rise is 330 m. The first part of the track runs along a small mountain road with many hairpin turns to reach Vrbatova chalet. Then it continues past the Hanc and Vrbata Monument and the ‘U Ctyr panu’ junction to Labska chalet at an altitude of 1300 m a.s.l. There is no marking on the small road; after that you follow the red, yellow and blue tourist marking. Note: There is a critical point for all handicapped tourists in the ascent to the Hanc and Vrbata Monument above Vrbatova chalet. People in wheelchairs will need an assistant. The road is covered in gravel and has transverse drainage channels. This track offers magnificent views of the Krkonose (including the Snezka and Kotel peaks) and from Labska chalet you can see the glacial valley called Labsky dul. Along the track are structures belonging to the light military fortifications dating back to 1938 and the Hanc and Vrbata Monument. As an alternative, from the ‘U Ctyr panu’ junction you can take a side path marked in yellow and green to the sources of the River Labe. The 2 km long descent to Labska chalet is covered in gravel and almost inaccessible for wheelchairs without an assistant. Note: A bus line operates a line to Vrbatova chalet, or you can ask the officer at the car park in Horni Misecky to issue a permit for your car to drive to Vrbatova chalet if you present a disability card. This will shorten the track by 4.2 km in one direction and the rise will be 300 m less. The central car park in Horni Misecky (the starting point) can be used for free by disability card holders. Jilemnicka Chalet The building isn’t barrier-free, but people in wheelchairs can enjoy refreshments on the terrace. It is suitable for seniors and families with children. Vrbatova Chalet The chalet isn’t accessible for wheelchairs, but the staff will be glad to offer refreshments to families with small children and to seniors. Labska Chalet This chalet has barrier-free access to the restaurant. Shelter at the ‘U Ctyr panu’ junction This is a small tourist shelter designed for temporary use in bad weather and for rest.
