The longest section runs via the nature reserve of Králický Sněžník and the ranges of Hrubý Jeseník and Nízký Jeseník. If necessary, it can be divided into two parts with a stopover in Jeseník. There are multiple highlights: the peak of Králický Sněžník, the town of Jeseník and the crest trail leading up to Praděd mountain. The 170-kilometer section shows off all kinds of landscape and is one of the main features of the entire thru-hike. You can make a turn at Smrk mountain and take an alternative route along the crest of Rychlebské hory range. More information in Section 10 (Rychlebské hory).
