River description:

The river sources in Slovak Ore Mountains. At first, it flows to the north, anyway, before the community of Cierny Balog it turns to northwest, and this direction is kept up to its mouth to Hron river, near to the town of Podbrezová. Its river basin makes 290 square kilometres approx., total navigation length makes 25 kms, but only 12 kms suitable for passage. In its upper section, Cierny Hron has flat, gravely rived bed, 6-8 metres wide. Low banks are, at the beginning, overgrown with osiers. Later, the countryside is changing, the river flows through forests and the banks are quite steep. Regarding tributaries, there is passable a part of Kamenistý brook, it mouths from left side in approx. 10 kms distance from Cierny Balog. This Kamenisty brook is accessible along the road, passing alonmg its deep valley. Behind its mouth, Cierny Hron becomes wide, waterly river, flowing through countryside changing forests with meadows. In the community of Hronec, there is to be found the only weir, mostly well passable. Cierny Hron could be navigated even by less experienced watermen in open vessels (boats). Cierny Hron is well good navigable, if there is enough water at its confluence with Hron-river, and this situation is favourable just at middle water level.
