To the springs of Jizera

Jizerské hory, author: Jiří Morávek

The Jizera Greenway does not start directly at the source of the Jizera River which rises on the Polish side of the Jizera Mountains but in the village of Jizerka. 

The Jizera Greenway does not start directly at the source of the Jizera River which rises on the Polish side of the Jizera Mountains but in the village of Jizerka.

The Jizerka settlement is the last place where you can get to by car, find accommodation and overnight stay. That is why it was chosen as the beginning of the cycle route. It is situated by the Jizerka stream, which flows into the Jizera River from the right about a kilometre below the settlement. There is also a bridge over which you can get to the left Polish bank. If you turn left after the bridge, after about 600 m you will reach a wide road with the ER-2 cycle path. Follow it to the left and follow it to the Polana Izerska saddle. After the saddle the so-called Telephone Road turns left with a pedestrian red marker. If you follow it you will reach the Jizera spring area after about three kilometres.

Even on the Czech side you can find one of the springs of the Jizera. From Jizerka we could reach it by following the forest road in the direction of Smědava (cycle route 22). When you reach its highest point, turn right on the red cycle path through Předěl. In the going up below the highest peak of the Czech Jizera Mountains, Smrk (1124 m above sea level) the traverse Vidlicová cesta turns right, where the spring is located. The turn-off is at the point where a blue marked path called the Heavenly Ladder climbs steeply to the top of Smrk. You can return to Jizerka by following the forest roads leading past the Jizera Peat Bog.
