From the point of view of the legislation of the Czech Republic, the trails are always open, 24 hours a day, all year round. From time to time, there may be closures on the trails due to ongoing logging, trail repairs or possible calamities (breaks after a storm), in the vast majority of cases only individual sections. During the spring thaw, the trails are waterlogged, please start using them when we let you know they are ready. Keep in mind that although the trails are not closed in winter, if a higher layer of snow has fallen, there is no chance of finding them in the terrain. Out of season, with low attendance, the facilities are closed at boarding points.
There is no entrance fee at Singltrek pod Smrkem. From the point of view of the legislation of the Czech Republic, the trails are freely accessible to all. You can support Singltrek pod Smrkem by using the services in the main boarding place Singltrek Centrum or in other boarding places. The funds that pay the boarding points form a substantial part of the budget of Singltrek pod Smrkem ops, which takes care of the maintenance of the trails.
The ideal bike for Singltrek pod Smrkem is the so-called trailbike (relaxed stable frame geometry, wider handlebars, wider tires). You can enjoy the trails both on a fully sprung bike and on a hardtail. Both have their advantages. Choose mainly according to your driving technique. However, you can do with any mountain bike.
In the Singltrek Center it is possible to rent a quality mountain bike, on which riding on the trails is great fun. Due to the great interest in renting bikes, we always recommend booking a bike in advance. The reservation form and all information about bicycle rental can be found on the website RENTABIKE.SINGLTREK.CZ . In addition to the Singltrek Center, you can rent a bike in other boarding places, the Center at Kyselka or the Libverda Bike Center.

The weather in the Frýdlant foothills often differs from what Czech meteorologists report. It is because we are separated by a belt of mountains. Take a look at this proven weather forecast for Nové Město pod Smrkem. Always keep in mind that the trails of Singltrek pod Smrkem are in the mountains and the weather may change unexpectedly. Do not take unnecessary risks in storms, heavy rains and strong winds. On the contrary, if it's cold, raining or drizzle, it's no obstacle to an absolutely great ride when you have good equipment.

If you can sleep in a tent, in the open air or in a car, come to the campsite, which is directly on the beach of the swimming pool at the Singltrek Center. Singltrek Centrum runs part of the campsite around the building above the trail and in front of the fence (upon arrival, come and arrange where to place the tent).
Prices in Singltrek Camp are as follows: 50 CZK person / night, 50 CZK / tent, 100 CZK / car / night. If campers are registered at the Singltrek Center, toilets and showers remain open for the night (you can buy a shower token at the Singltrek Center). Accommodation in the camp does not need to be booked in advance.

The great advantage of Singltrek pod Smrkem is that you can find yourself well and drink right on the trails. Singltrek Centrum is becoming famous for its cuisine - simple, fresh and quality food. Furthermore, for trails, we recommend a buffet at the Hubertka cottage, which offers homemade cakes or bread with lard. Pizza is made at the Libverda Bike Center. In U Kyselky's snack, you can enjoy pancakes. Restaurants and refreshments in the area are not worth mentioning here, their short list is in another part of the website , for more detailed information go google.
The most important cycling equipment are helmet and gloves. If you do not drive fast, no additional protectors are needed. Bring a drink, a small snack to quickly replenish your energy (such as a muesli bar), a spare soul or gluing kit, a pump and basic tools with you on the trail. We also recommend throwing a light windbreaker, a hat or scarf under the helmet and spare socks into the backpack, which can be very useful for you in the event of a sudden change in weather. Always have a recharged phone and documents with you. Before leaving, carefully check the condition of the trails and safety information.
Before setting out on a Singltrek, make sure you haven't forgotten anything. People often leave helmets, sneakers or axles of a sprung fork or other wheel components at home when disassembling the wheels when loading into a car. To make your stay around the Singltrek Center more pleasant, we also recommend a towel and soap, so you can take a shower after the ride. In nice summer weather, don't forget your swimsuit, right next to the Singltrek Center there is a beautiful and clean natural swimming pool, which would be a shame not to use in nice weather.
You often ask us if you can take a dog with you to Singltrek. This is not a problem if your dog is calm and well-behaved. The dog can go to the Singltrek Center, a campsite in its vicinity and on trails. In the camp, make sure that the dog does not bother other visitors. Always keep safety in mind on the trails (so that the dog does not get caught under someone's bike), be foresighted. Keep the dog under constant surveillance. The law prohibits the free running of dogs in the woods. Please do not allow your dog to swim in the pool.
Even if we organize educational programs or a volunteer brigade, the traffic on the trails for individual visitors is not closed. You can come and enjoy the trails without any worries
Children are welcome at Singltrek pod Smrkem! When we planned and designed the trails and the starting point, we also thought about the children and their parents. Singltrek pod Smrkem and Singltrek Centrum are family friendly. You don't have to leave your family or children at home when you ride your bike. You can go together without having to be significantly restricted by someone in the family.
If you have children older than 5 years, go on a company ride. Some can handle the whole blue circuit, some only the green one. Seven-year-old children are already riding on red trails and the most capable of them can handle even black sections. If you have small children, go for a ride alternately. Even if the children do not follow the trails, there is still something to do. At the Singltrek Center there is a playground, a large meadow, a forest, a natural swimming pool and refreshments.
We do not recommend riding the Singltrek pod Smrkem trails with wheelchairs, children in a seat and a towbar. Narrow paths are suitable for children only from the moment when they are able to ride a bike on their own. Not all bottlenecks or bends in the trails can be driven with the truck or drawbar. At the same time, narrow paths require relatively deft maneuvering, which can be dangerous for children in a car seat.
With small children, always be careful and foresight on the trails. Always go to the child. Be careful that the child does not get in the way of another rider. At the same time, be considerate of other people on the trails, do not brake others unnecessarily, let the faster riders in front of you. If children need to rest for a while, do not stand or sit on the trail and be sure not to leave bikes or other things on the trail.
Children must always wear a helmet when riding a Singltrek. During the ride, make sure that their helmet holds well on their heads, does not fall and does not unfold.
