Around the village of Radějov (19 km)
Rideability : all the year round
The closed tour passes the entire village of
Radějov, the lonely house Mlýnky
and its wonderful valley. For example, the village centre in front of the
local authority can be a starting point. The path leads us along the left
bank of the brook. Behind the last house, we turn to the left and through a
farm-track we ascend to the robust service-trees where we joint the yellow
tourist marking. We follow the yellow marking just only a bit but the field
path points to a forest on the horizon. Along the forest path, we come to
the lonely house Mlýnky, an important tourist point. From the Jana
guest-house, we set out along an old mill-race upstream the Mandát brook.
The comfortable road will change in a path leading us to the Měsíční (Moon)
valley. We climb over the pan and enter the game-park accessible for the
public. A narrow forest path leads a pilgrim through a magic valley, over
large meadows with solitaire oak, through the natural reserve Kútky,
around forest ponds to the lonely cottage Pusté. The asphalt road takes us
to the valley where we leave the game-park. In some minutes, we reach the
motorway between Radějov and Lučina. We take the road to the left and
immediately turn to a forest road. It leads us through a valley on the left
brook’s bank, past a playground to Radějov.
The bikers can mount past the Štěpničky ski slope to the ridge, to
bring the bike into the game-park after 1 km and to continue through the
Mandát brook’s valley to Pusté, than to the valley and on the motorway (only
a bit) to Radějov. It is possible to manage this entire road (15 km) on a
quiet good asphalt road.
The village of Radějov is the south-western
entrance gate into the Protected Landscape Area of the White Carpathians.
The previous part of the village is located along the Radějovka brook.
Dominating the village is the Pseudo-Roman church of St. Cyril and
Methodius. On the Travičná hill, above the village, the look-out
tower of the same name rises. On the opposite hill, the Štěpničky ski
slope is located. Not far from here, the game-park Radějov begins.
The game-park was founded for intensive breeding of fallow deer. The area of
the park is 1565 ha. The natural reserve Kútky with its meadows,
solitaire trees and preserves is a part of the game-park.
