Today, we went on a trip to the Beskid Mountains with the aim of hiking up Lysá Mountain. I parked my car in Malenovice by the Rajská Bouda Hotel. We set off from here along the yellow tourist trail, which runs parallel to the Lysá Mountain Nature Trail. The trail starts off on an asphalt road and the incline begins after crossing the bridge over the Satina Steam. We got to the "U korýtka" stop by hiking higher along the asphalt road surrounded by forests. There is a memorial plaque on the rock formation by the road. Then, we walked along a stony road, which took us to the "U Veličků" pub, where many tourists take a break and get snacks. There is a path from the Pod Lukšinec crossroads to Lukšinec, which leads along a ridge and runs through the Ondrášovy díry natural historic site. This is where the green tourist trail from Staškova meets the yellow tourist trail. The green and yellow trails both end here at Lukšinec and from here we headed along the main red tourist trail, which leads all the way up to the Lysá Mountain Peak. Along the way, saw some magical scenery of the peak in front of us or the valley below. We hiked 16.5km and Andy and I had a really great time.
Lysá Mountain (1324m above sea level) is the highest mountain in the Moravia-Silesia Beskid Mountains and Těšín Regions. It lies on the edge of the villages, Krásná, Malenovice, Ostravice and Staré Hamry. From 1939-1945, this peak was also the highest point of the Bohemia and Moravia Protectorates (although it lies in Silesia). There is a road that leads to the bare peak from Krásná and on this road, there is a distinctive telecommunication transmitter, a meteorological station and several mountain huts.
