Mlýnský vrch (Mill Hill) – stopes and a volcanic rock wall
The ridge rising on the banks of Břehyně Pond hides walls formed by mining the volcanic vein, as well as a rock wall almost 10 metres high.
What will you see? A rock wall formed of volcanic rock, a mining stope, views of the countryside ... Stretched into the shape of a short ridge, the hill exists because of the presence of a hard volcanic vein. Its outcrop can be seen in the top part of Mlýnský vrch. The vein forms a rock wall up to 8 metres high. It is also here that you can find mining stopes. Attractive are also contacts of volcanic rock with sandstone in the shape of iron lining – “bread crusts” typical of the contacts of acidic volcanic rocks. The top parts offer beautiful views of Břehyňský rybník (Břehyně Pond) and the Bezděz castle.
