At first, the trail leads along the road, but after you enter the rock town, the character of the road also changes. Ascents and descents are more frequent, the trail stretches like a snake between the rocks and through the narrow gaps of rock blocks.
The most challenging place of the entire Cinibulka trail is the rocky Maze at the Na Rovinách game preserve, where it is necessary to climb with the help of a chain on steps carved into the rock to a height of about five meters. Despite this difficulty, this section is probably the most magical of the entire Cinibulka trail.
