The first formation to be seen on your left is the Indian not far from the Skalni Mesto Hotel. From there, you can get to the entrance of the actual loop. The loop starts at Box Office No. 1 just outside the Lesni Zatisi Hotel or at Box Office No. 2 at the Information Centre opposite the train station. The first distinctive spire of on the loop is the Rock Guard followed by the Aerie and the Jug one of the most gorgeous formations with its dolphin-shaped handle. On the right-hand side of the pathway tower the Giant's Armchair and the Grandmother's Armchair. Across the creek (which is actually the Metuje River) stands the astonishing Sugar Cone on its tip supported by children with sticks and twiglets. The pathway then turns and you will walk past the Organ and the Helmet on your right just at the Rerichova Rokle (Watercress Gorge) pathway junction. The loop continues to the left past the Knight's Casque which is, however, visible only if you look back. After the Knight's Casque you get to a more open space called the Suburb. The most distinctive formations in the Suburb are the Glove and the Twins in the Swaddling Clothes.
Immediately after the Glove there is just a narrow passageway provided with a Gothic Gate, formerly the entrance to the actual Rock Town. The Long Corridor beginning just after the Gate will lead you to the Elephant Square followed by the Sweetheart and the Giant's Bedroom. Farther on the left-hand slope you can admire the Carpets and the Mushroom. The gorge you are passing through changes into an open area after the Ten Commandments. On the area you can admire the Tooth and the Devil's Bridge behind it. On the left towers the Eliska's Spire one of the highest spires in the area. The pathway will then lead you past the Thunder Boulder, the Little Madonna, the Dwarf, and the Lioness Head on your right to the Small Square with the Silver Spring and the Little Waterfall. To get to the Big Waterfall, you have to take the branch pathway on your right-hand side. At first the pathway built in 1820 leads you up the stairs. On your way up, do not forget to look back to admire the St. Wenceslas Crown with the Lamb as well as the rock panorama with the Russian Cossack. From the highest point of the pathway, it takes just a short time to get to a square-like area from where you can enter the cave chamber with the Big Waterfall. When entering the cave, do not overlook a bust of Johan Wolfgang Goethe with a plaque as a reminder of his visit to these rocks. Above the waterfall lies a romantic Rock Lake offering short narrated punt trips. After returning to the Small Square, the loop continues to the right past the Powder Tower to the Rock Castle from where there is the most beautiful view of the Lovers, the highest and the most gorgeous rock formation in the area. At its foot, on the way to Rerichova Rokle (Watercress Gorge) you will find the Rock Chapel dedicated to those who connected their lives with these rocks. The loop then continues to the vista point above Rerichova Rokle offering breathtaking views of the Lovers' Mountain, the Rock Castle and two spires called the Guillotines followed by the Turtle, the Sugar Refinery with a tall stack and, below the stack, an awesome view of a majestic and monumental rock group: The St. Stephen's Crown on the left, the Mayor in the middle and the Mayoress on the right. The loop will lead you through the long and narrow Mouse Hole between them to the Giant's Piano. The loop ends with the Rock Echo Point where, as early as in 1783, the guides blew French horns and fired a mortar for tourists' pleasure. The sound echoed from the Cross Hill wall and returned sevenfold. The loop can be ended by a walk around the former Sandpit now flooded with water offering short boat trips. Those who come from the Information Centre enter the rocks just here at Box Office No.2.
