The Ridge Trail nearly reaches an exciting natural museum, the Indian village of Rosehill, before sharply turning away and descending to the bottom of the Kamenice River gorge. After Mezní můstek, the path ascends steeply to Mezná, the only village in the national park territory. Following steep descents and ascents, it's a delight to continue along the most beautiful alley of Bohemian Switzerland, a road lined with ancient maples, to Mezní Louka, an oasis amidst rocks and forests.
