The name of the hill (in English: Key) originates from old Slavonic "kljutch" which meant "springs". The top of Klic Hill is located at an altitude of 759m. There is a stone field on the slopes, and on one side is a distinctive rock which produces breathtaking icicles and frost waterfalls in winter. At the foot of Klic Hill strong springs of drinking water are found. The top of the hill is a nature reserve (since 1967) .
You can climb to the top of Klic Hill only on marked tourist paths. The starting points are Nový Bor , Cvikov or Svor . The path to the top is rather steep but children can manage it. Depending on your physical condition, you will need 1 to 2 hours. Wear sports shoes. The hike is worth doing as you will definitely like the view of České středohoří (Central Bohemian Uplands) , the Lusatian Mountains , the Jizera Mountains , and if weather is good, of the Krkonoše Mountains , Děčínský Sněžník Lookout Tower , and a part of the Krušné Hory (Ore Mountains) . People often climb to the top of Klic Hill early in the morning to see the sunrise, or late in the evening, which is another perfect choice. Many tourists arrive to the hill in autumn, and in winter too -to begin the new year.
A part of the rock massive on the southwestern side of Klic Hill seems to be missing. Once upon a time, the Dragon lived in the hill. He was not evil, not at all. He was friendly, and he loved socialising with other dragons. One evening , on the way home from a session with his dragon friends in a pub, he was not able to find the entrance in his cave, crashed the rock, and a part of the rock broke away.
