Trip to Nine Rocks in the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands

Starting point

Parking by the restaurant Posledni míle in the campsite in the village of Mílovy.

Description of the hike

From the village of Mílovy we went along a wide forest road. There is no hiking trail, but that is not a problem. The path ascends slightly and eventually we reached the blue hiking trail. We continued along it to the Nine Rocks. Along the way, beautiful rock blocks began to appear, which made the journey so much more varied. Below the Nine Rocks, the blue trail left the wide forest road and we continued on a slightly steeper climb on a trail that was full of rocks and roots. Soon we reached the rocks. It is necessary to climb the rock to the very top, but it is not difficult. There were already many hikers around the Nine Rocks, so we didn't stay long and continued on.

First we joined the yellow sign, but soon we continued on the red one. After that we passed by Lisovska Rock and continued to Malinska Rock. The trail still climbs and descends gently and is very easy to follow. The climb up to Malinska Rock itself is slightly more difficult. There is a trail leading up here, but you are walking on the rock without any belay features. After climbing the Malinska Rock, we had beautiful views of the central part of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. The descent from the Malinska Rock is a bit steeper and there are again a lot of rocks on the trail. Eventually we joined the forest asphalt road, which led us back to the village of Mílovy. As a reward, we had a good lunch in the pub Poslední Míle.


The route runs all the way along wide forest paths or trails. There is a steeper climb only at the end to the Nine Rocks. The terrain here is rocky and can be slippery when wet. The climb to the rock formations themselves is more difficult. But even children can do it. The route is ideal for families with children or dogs. A stroller would have a problem in the rocky passages.

Water availability

There is no opportunity to refill liquids on the trail, so it is necessary to have water with you. 1.5 litres per person is ideal. Pubs are then in the village of Mílovy.

Sleeping options

Accommodation options are offered by the village of Mílovy. There are guesthouses and a hotel. In summer there is also a camp.

Mountain peaks

From the top of Devět skal and Malinská skála, you can enjoy views of part of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. Malinska skála certainly offers a better view.


The forest paths are easily passable. In the rocky sections - the ascent to Deviti skaly and the descent from Malinska skala - it is necessary to watch out for rocks and roots in wet conditions. The ascents to the rock blocks themselves are more difficult. You have to walk on the rock, but even children can do it. There are only railings on the top of Nine Rocks, there are none on Malinska Rock. So watch out for children.


There are no restaurants on the route. Therefore it is necessary to have some snacks with you. We had a late lunch at the restaurant Posledni míle in the village of Mílovy. There are more pubs.
