Prysk – Forgotten Quarries

To enjoy magnificent views and see abandoned quarries, you can travel to the western-most part of the Liberec Region. Not only will you be able to marvel over the astonishing views of the Lusatian Mountains, Bohemian Switzerland and the Central Bohemian Highlands, but you will also recognize the large abandoned two-level quarry for basalt columns near the famous Panská skála (the Manor Rock). A trip suitable for active and curious tourists and active families; its total length is 12 km (7.5 mi).

The proud princess from the famous TV fairy tale hid from pursuing soldiers behind the Manor Rock. This notorious film scene invites many visitors to Prácheň. However, this trip will take you to the forgotten Klučky quarry and also to the sandstone quarries above Prysk.

Follow the blue trail from the Manor Rock toward Polevsko; the blue trail turns left at the Klučky fork, but if you walk a few meters along a non-marked dirt road, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Lusatian Mountains above the quarry. Then return to the blue trail that comes to a paved road. You should follow the road to the left, but if you walk just a few meters to the right, you will find yourself in the middle of a former quarry. The size and monumental look of the quarry will surely touch your heart. We recommend that you walk up to the second level along usable non-marked path. Return to the blue trail and follow the road all the way to the small chapel above Polevsko. The Klíč and the Ještěd, two dominant peaks of the region – that is an unforgettable view. Take the non-marked beaten path at the chapel across the Polevsko meadow all the way to the mountain top to enjoy a view of the Lusatian Mountains and the Ralsko rolling land. A yellow trail joins the path at the forest, and you can follow it along a comfortable path all to the way to the Pod Medvědí hůrkou (Under the Bear Hill) fork. Then turn to the green trail to the right, walk around the Stříbrný vrch (Silver Hill) from the left side, and you will come to a wide forest road. Once the road begins to descend, you need to pay attention and leave the green trail at the fork (it steeply descends there); instead, take a non-marked paved road to the right. After some 500 m (0.3 mi), the road turns left and begins to descend steeply. After 2 km (1.2 mi), you will come to Prysk to the church, from where you should continue to a tourist trail fork.

Take the yellow trail back to Prácheň over a slight ascent. There are two former major sandstone quarries along the way that you can look at – one quarry is presently used as a rock theater (take a right turn to the forest some 400 m (0.2 mi) behind the road sign marking the end of the Prysk village. The other quarry is right at the road – they are called the Lipkov quarries.

There are refreshment opportunities at Prácheň and at the swimming-pool kiosk in Prysk.

You can park your car at the paid parking lot at the Manor Rock or at a parking lot in Horní Prysk.
