Part of the territory which you can visit when visiting Dubí reaches from the Nature Park to the Eastern Ore Mountains. It is a protected territory drawing from the summit border sections of the Ore Mountains from Petrovice along Cínovec at a height above sea level of 700 to 900 m. The Nature Park was founded in 1995 on approximately 40 km2 and was meant to protect the character of the ridge with its forest vegetation, mountain and moorland meadows, and the characteristic flora and fauna. In Germany the Nature Park is joined by the similarly protected territory Landschaftsschutzgebiet Osterzgebirge. Both within the Park and without you can see true treasures of Ore Mountain flora and fauna. In the summit areas of the Ore Mountains pine scrub, blackberry, cranberry, dwarf and downy birch, bog bilberry, bog cranberry, polytrichum and sphagnum mosses, round-lead sundew, heather, as well as hare's-tail, common, and broad-leafed cottongrass all grow in the moorlands. On mountain meadows and glades you can spot wolf's bane, willow gentian, European hawkweed, oxeye daisy, baldmoney, rosebay willowherb, martagon, blue, white and pink wolfsbane, pink and white foxglove, wolf's-foot clubmoss, bistort and common field pansy. If you're silent during your visit you may spot the native fauna of the Ore Mountain forests and fields, such as the European deer, European badger, European pine marten, mouflon, wild boar, roe deer, or black grouse. If you're a passionate botanist we recommend a visit to the mountain botanical gardens in Schellerhau, which lies on the German side approx. 6 km from Cínovec. This botanical garden embedded in the terrain was founded in 1906 and contains plant biotopes from the Ore Mountains and other European high altitude mountains.
When travelling along the eastern half of the Ore Mountains we recommend using hiking maps to 1 : 50000 or 1 : 25000 scale. The best is the map Krušné Hory-Východ, 1 : 25000, 1st edition, year 2010.
