The Rychlebské Mountains are flat mountainous region in the north of Moravia. They are located on the border with Poland, where they join with the Góry Złote and Góry Bialskie ranges. The northern part of the mountains consists of a compact ridge with an elevation up to 950 meters above sea level. At the southern part, the peaks are higher and the ridges are more rugged with distinct saddles. The geological composition is dominated by shale, mica schist and granite, also interesting is the presence of calcite and graphite. The slopes (mostly fault formed) are steep and grooved from watercourses; the summits are mostly flat, with remnants of level surfaces.The region’s environmental protection is limited only to Jeskyně na Pomezí National Nature Reserve, Vodopády Stříbrného Potoka Natural Monument and Račí Údolí Nature Reserve, all of which are located outside of the highest parts of the range. The ridges of the Rychlebské Mountains are generally almost 100% woodland and with an absence of housing. There are 9 main thousand-meter high peaks in the range, with only one mountain cabin, called Paprsek. The highest peak is Smrk, with an elevation of 1,126 meters above sea level – only two meters higher than its namesake in the Jizerské Mountains. Although the system of tourist trails is comparable to that of other ranges, some of the thousanders lie off the trails. The only guidance that is left is the border, a good quality map and reasonably good orientation skills. If you wish to be alone during your hike of the thousanders, there is not a much better choice than the Rychlebské Mountains.
