CZ, Brdy – Cross-Country Skiing Around Pilsky Pond
Snowy Brdy have their magic, and more and more cross-country skiers are attracting in the winter season. There are many forest paths in the area in the winter, and if you are lucky, you will also find traces of trails. You can go for example up the dominant of the region of Pribram - Tremosna or somewhat deeper into the Brdy forests up to Skelna Hut.

If you are going to Tremosina in winter, it is best to choose the way from Rovina klippe. You can get it either from Obecnice, Bohutinor Kozicin. If you choose the second option, you will pass through the Pilska Water Reservoir. There has recently been a new tourist landing, from which this water reservoir has a nice view. From Rovina, continue along the forest road, from which turn the blue tourist sign towards Pilas Fountain. The road rises to the right and after about 1.5 km you will find yourself at the crossroads. There is an emergency call and a tourist landing.
On Tremosna there is a forest path called Tremoshenská. In particular, the first stretch of the path rises, but then passes mainly along the contour. The road leads to the next crossroads just below the summit of Tremosna, where it turns slightly to the left. On the left there is a view of Tok military shooting range area. Then you just need to turn steep to the right and climb a rather steep hill to the top of Tremosna.
You can also go to Skelna Hut from the Pilsky water reservoir. This meadow enclave lies between Zavírka and the sixth largest brick peak (Brdce) and formerly the glassworks belonging to the Adler family. The first few tens of meters of this route coincide with the trip to Tremosna, but at the first junction behind the reservoir it is necessary to turn left to Pilska Well. Just across from it there is a crossroads, where the blue tourist sign turns to the left on a forest path named Perkanska, at Skelna Hut it is about 2.5 km away. The path first descends into the valley of the Pilský potok, then again rises up the forest.
From the busy traffic today, there is only a barn, a little pond near the signpost and a well. The entire deforested area has an area of more than ten hectares and acts a bit mysteriously in every season. Whoever has enough strength can continue from here to the crossroads of St. John, from where it is only a short distance to the second highest peak of the Brdy which is called Praha. From here you can easily reach the edge of Láz, the road leads directly around the Lazsky water reservoir, and go back to the Struma Forest Way back to the Pilsky water reservoir.
What Not to Forget?
In addition to what is mentioned in almost every article about the , meaning a paper map, warm clothes and a snack, you can surprise some fallen trees or wood mining. Also, encounters with high game are frequent in the Brdy. In the season, the main forest paths are covered, trails are frequented on frequented trails. Compared to previous years, significant tourist routes have also improved significantly.

Although Hradiště is one of the highest peaks in Brdy, it is not very visited, which is probably due to the absence of any tourist sign leading to its peak. But it would be a pity to miss it, it is beautiful in the local forests in every season.
The Brdy village of Vacíkov became known mainly due to the activities of the local civic association fighting gold mining on Petrášek Mountain. The good news is that his efforts are not in vain and we can go to the forests around Vacík full of mushrooms, forest fruits and also many historical and natural attractions even today.
I have been going to the Brd area for a very long time. I read a lot of articles about this mysterious area and wanted to explore it with my own eyes and also with my own feet on a bicycle.

However, the popular Jizera Mountains are already bursting, especially on weekends at the seams. But where else to go for a nice run? Ore Mountains, for example, are offered.
Downhill skiing or snowboarding is probably not waiting for us this year, but cross-country skiers also offer great variety in these times. Today we will go to the Jizera Mountains. Cross-country skiing conditions are great, tracks beautifully prepared.

A hike to this hill can easily be combined with a visit to nearby Třemšín.
Zavírka and Linkův Cross are among the most mysterious places in the Brdy, which are associated with many legends.
