"An outing during a stay in Wrocław. We parked in the large car park at Prz. Walimowska (10 złoty). Beginning on the black trail round the north flank of the mountain, we diverted onto a higher forest track that met the yellow trail up the west ridge via Mała Sowa. This was steep at first but soon leveled off along the ridge, with opening views through the forest of beech, firs and bilberry. A short pull brought us onto the cluttered summit area. We then climbed the 25m observation tower (6 złoty each) to view the fine, if hazy, panorama. To descend, we followed the yellow trail west for sev" - Wielka Sowa, marktrengove, Aug 4, 2017
"Must be a fifth highest peak in Czech Republic. By prominence must be the second. It is also highest in Moravia. There is TV tower, restaurant and hotel on the top. If that's the target, then it's possible drive to the top. However there are few more paths. Navigation showed me most direct trail. However i found that it's closed. Too late, i was not willing to go back kilometer or so.. So i just made it. Anyway, nothing complicated, some T1 grade valley walk.. Thats also highest and most prominent peak in my 29.5 km hike today. "Praděd" stands for "Grand Grandfather". Not so far away there is " - Praděd, Deividas, Jun 13, 2013
"Wide and well marked trail lead to the top. I found border marks, triangulation point, communication tower and some kind of construction on the top.. Excellent views to surroundings.. Peak is number 81# in Germany by prominence (CP=424 m)" - Lausche, Deividas, Apr 20, 2013
"We began our walk in Pec pod Sněžkou (altitude 800-odd metres above sea level) and walked via Obří důl up to Sněžka. We returned to Pec via Luční bouda with its monumental mountain. The chairlift was out of action on the day we did our walk, owing to scheduled maintenance, and the weather was glorious, so we were far from the only people climbing the mountain that day!" - Sněžka, isabellehatfield, Jun 16, 2012
"We took advantage of a long bank holiday weekend and began our hike in Karlova Studánka, following the Bílá Opava river up to the peak. The hiking season had still not officially started and in places, snow blanketed our path. The last part of the walk to the mast was on asphalt. We then went down via Divoký důl (the 'Wild Valley') and Dlouhé stráně reservoir to the nearest bus stop. A fun walk, made slightly challenging by clambering over snow!" - Praděd, isabellehatfield, May 7, 2012
