Rychleby trails

History of trails

Rychleby Trails is a non-profit organization which created a network of trails around the village of Černá Voda (Black Water) near the well known spa-town of Jesenik in Northern Moravia.

The network of trails was developed to provide riders with a great mountain biking experience. After being almost completely lost to the wilderness by neglect over the course of time, we rejuvenated, reconstructed and adapted old, stone paved hunting paths built over a century ago into a great set of mountain biking trails.


You can also visit "Zahrádka" Bike park near Velká Kraš village. It is marked on our map. You can get there along the Černý potok Trail and back along the green tourist.
