An easy walk along a pretty stream with holiday huts (chata) to a location, somehow known as Hawai, then back to Davle along the banks of the Vltavá.
Access: By car : park in the free carpark at the supermarket in Davle. By bus : take the bus from Smichovske nadraží to Davle and cut through the carpark located to the left of the supermarket.
Difficulty: easy Duration: 2h30 Distance : approx 9 km
summarized itinery: Davle – (cross bridge and go left on red) – Libřice – (blue) – Na Dolích – (blue) – Hawai – (green) – Zahořansky důl – (green) – Petrov – (green) – Petrov u Prahy train stop – (red) – Davle
Detailed itinery : Go through the car park until you are on the banks of the river Vltáva and go right. Cross the bridge and walk along the side of the railway tracks going left. There are frequent vehicules therefore if you decide to let your dog of the leash at this point, exercise caution. Personally, I keep my two on the leash a little longer. Follow the red trail markers to Libřice then switch to the blue trail markers.Keep on the blue to Na Dolích and continue, still on the blue, to Hawai. Be careful, it is easy to miss Hawai as there is no indication on the path you are following. The signpost “Hawai” is on a tree on the other side of the stream, therefore you should keep looking out for the little bridge and the signpost otherwise you will go too far up the blue trail.
You will find yourself walking up a wide track, through a beautiful pine forest. You are now following green trail markers. The trail becomes narrower as you follow the green trail to Zahořansky důl, then all the way to Petrov.
Once you arrive in Petrov, you will need to put your dog on the leash for 15 minutes. Go right along the street U Ručiček then turn left into K Nádraží. There is a little shop on the left if you need to buy a snack. Keep going, following the green trail markers, all the way to the train tracks at Petrov U Prahy station.
Here, do not cross the bridge but go right, following red trail markers, along the river, all the way back to the bridge at Davle. (Photograph: people marking out an ice-skating rink on the frozen Vltava river).
