We decided to explore the area between Bohnické and Drahanské valley in detail. And going through some of the natural features required to leave the bikes at home. This time we started at the tiny parking lot next to the pet cemetery in Bohnice. A visit to the pet cemetery is definitely worth the trip. After passing through point 4 we followed the basically nonexistent Čimický potok (stream) and entered the bizarre area of Zámecká rokle (ravine) with many strange dilapidated buildings. You may be wondering what is that about. However, at the end of the ravine next to the Vltava river the first dynamite factory in Czechia, was founded in 1868. The function of those structures may than become more understandable. Continuing your walk down the ravine after point 5 is possible, but forbidden.
The most interesting part of this walk is between points 8 and 9. You may understand that here bikes would not have any chance. Another interesting part is between 13 and 14. You definitely should walk on the right-hand side of the fence with the panoramic views of the river and Prague.
