For more information
The national nature reserve, Novodomské peat moor, was declared in 1967 and its total area is 574.8 hectares. The reserve is situated in the region of Chomutov at an altitude of 810-830 m. The protected area is a watershed dividing the upland moor with strong underground springs, consisting of two independent peat moors - the Načetínské peat moor and the Jezerní peat moor are connected by waterlogged and peaty pine groves. There is a typical flora and fauna living in this biotope. A characteristic growth of this biotope is a dwarf pine. In the undergrowth there are typical peat species such as Marsh Labrador tea, dwarf birch, bog-rosemary, round-leave sundew, northern cranberry and black crowberry. Among the most important animal species there are the black grouses, boreal owls, Eurasian pygmy owls, Northern harriers, red crossbills or rarely common cranes. Only the border parts of the peat moor are accessible, e.g. Nový rybník. In the surroundings there are few roads and paths suitable for biking tours. You can also get there on foot, e.g. on the blue route from the Bezručovo údolí valley along the Kameničky dam and the nature reserve Buky nad Kameničkou. You can also go on the red route from Hora Sv. Šebestiána.
