Turn-by-turn directions

Surroundings of the Dalešice water reservoir

You start your trip in Dukovany and go along the Mlynářská and Energetická cycle tracks (yellow + white signs) to the dam of the Mohelno water reservoir. You ride up above the dam, from the Nad Mohelenskou stepí crossroads you follow the blue signs to the Babylon – lookout tower crossroads and turn left to the Babylon lookout tower. You continue along cycle track 403, Energetická and Pivovarská, to the town of Kramolín, and at the municipal office you turn right onto cycle track 5108 to Popůvky and Hartvíkovice. In Hartvíkovice you can visit Wilson Rock and view the Dalešice reservoir from above. You continue along the red tourist signs to the bridge over the Dalešice reservoir. Then you ascend along the road up the opposite slope, and turn right onto a forest path. After 500 meters, route 5107 joins the track with red signs. You will reach the Žleb crossroads, from where you turn left onto an unmarked road to Třebenice. In Třebenice you turn left at the bus stop, go past the municipal office out of the village and further on along road III/35122 through the towns of Plešice and Chroustov to Stropešín. It is recommended to go further on for about 500 metres to the Dalešice reservoir and the Stropešín lookout tower. After Stropešín you will again use track 5107, which will take you to Dalešice. You go past a local brewery, the Church of St. Peter and Paul and a castle. Then you continue along the same cycle track through meadows, fields and a forest until you get to road III/39218. You turn left and after about one kilometre of downhill riding you will come to the Dalešická přehrada – hráz (Dalešice Reservoir – dam) Crossroads. You then return and after less than 300 metres turn left onto the track with red tourist signs and come to the Pod Rabštejnem crossroads. Going towards Rabštejn along the red route you will turn left, but you must carry your bikes on your shoulders. The track leads over a creek to a short (100 m) but steep hill up to the next crossroads, Rabštejn – zřícenina (ruins). On the right you will continue along a forest path to the Vinohrady crossroads. Before you reach Dukovany 2.5 km away, you follow the Pivovarská cycle track.
