The Rychleby Trails are a network of mountain bike trails, which start and finish at the Base ("Základna"). There are a variety of trails which run through the rugged wilderness of the Rychleby Mountains. Enjoy the fast and flowy "Superflow" trail, the rocks and roots of technical "Wales", boulders of "Velryba", or more relaxing and family friendly "Vidnavský okruh".
All trails are passable in the rainy weather, too.
Rychlebské stezky trails start and finish in the village of Černá Voda at Information Centre Rychlebské stezky. Trails are built as closed circuits to enable visitors stray-free experience.
Information Centre provides related services such as test centrum of full suspension bikes, mountain bike school, bike café, bike shop, bike maintenance and repair shop, souvenirs.
Riding the Rychleby Trails is at your own risk. While we are not responsible for your health, we’d prefer you returned from your biking trips happy and in one piece. That’s why we have the following recommendations:
The opening hours of the trail centre are determined by the owner and by the needs of those who use and live in the woods. Please respect the fact that during the riding season, it’s forbidden to bike after:
The Rychleby Trails are completely closed out of season: from November 1st till March 31st.
You’ll find points marked with a cross and a number on the map. These indicate Rescue Points along the trails. The Rescue Service has the same map and can get to these places easily. In case of an injury, try to reach the nearest Rescue Point. If you have difficulty orienting yourself, call the Infocentre on (+420) 607 061 445.
The easier trails are marked in blue on map: the trail ‘Podél Černého potoka’, the ‘Trail LČR’ and the ‘Vidnavský okruh’. The first two are about 18 km in total, all three add up to about 25 km.
The ‘Lipovske Trails’ (‘Lipovské stezky’) are all suitable for children. They are shorter, around 8 km altogether, fun and can be completed more than once as the climb is short and it’s easy to see where you’re going.
All the other trails require a certain degree of confidence and experience riding through rough terrain. If you find the easier trails aren’t challenging enough, why not try some of the sections at the end of the ‘Superflow’ trail. They can be reached by wood fire roads.
