The Stone Mushroom at Jindrichov (Skalní hrib) is easily accessible by yellow marked hiking trail from Bramberk to Janov nad Nisou. The arrow-marked trail junction at "U Viklanu" will lead you directly to the Mushroom.
The Stone Mushroom was formed by a process of nonuniform erosion and weathering of two types of rock. A hard mass of granite mushroom's cap (4 m diameter) resisted erosion while an underlying softer stone weathers away forming a pedestal (1 m diameter).
