Approx 12kms, starting with a gentle climb up through woods to Tetin - a pretty village with clifftop viewpoints over the Berounka river. Then we go back through woods and across meadows to Beroun. One steep hill, which we can take at a gentle pace. At the end, we can get refreshment (a meal and drinks) in Beroun.
Bring food & drink (picnic lunch at viewpoint, weather permitting), and wear suitable boots for muddy paths.
