Going to Pravcicka gate in winter has several spells and one significant plus. No one is here (not like in summer, when there is hundreds tourists ), parking in Hrensko or Mezni Louka is free, entrence to gate also. Unfortunatelly entrance to several viewspoint should be close, becouse out of season (open only during weekend and during national holiday as restaurant Falcon nest, which is situated under the gate)
Does not matter. Pravcicka gate trail is open everyday.
On Pravcicka Gate you can go two ways. 1. From village Mezní Louka along the red tourist sign (Gabrielina trail). There is also a short walk from the information center (out of season closed) you will find the educated Lynx Path. A tastefully and ingeniously crafted interactive trail that will entertain and teach kids and adults! Continue on Gabriel's trail (6 km to Pravčická), where the school boards and guidebooks of Princess Elisalex Clary Aldringen and the guard of the National Park lead you to the finish. Guides in electronic form can be downloaded here. In winter, when there are trees without leaves, you will see the Pink Hill, the village of Janov and Pravčická itself. 2. Or from village Hřensko, follow red trail along the asfalt road from parking place and turn left to forest during 1km. Follow 2 km upp walking and during 30 min you will see wonderfull panorama under Pravcicka gate Tip: Make sure you have a firm ankle boot. Counter-slip on boots also comes in the hour.
