The most common point of entry into the Plakanek Valley is a tourist path beginning right below the magnificent Castle Kost . From here we can enjoy the most beautiful views of the castle standing on a rocky reef among trees. In the Plakanek Valley we can find a wonderful trail for both pedestrians and cyclists, lined with rocks of various shapes with caves, holes, and dense forests. After a short walk through the Plakanek Valley, we will come to the dam of the Černý Pond, where stands the small cottage belonging to the famous actor Josef Dvořák. The more experienced tourists can go further to the left, and walk to the picturesque village Vesec u Sobotky displaying original timbered houses, and then go back on the road. At this point, the hikers can also turn right, and make a circuit through the village Dobšín . For its beautiful nature of the Bohemian Paradise , the Plakanek Valley is a popular and sought out tourist area.
