The Bralce Nature Reserve is located at the foot of the Panská Mountain in the Štiavnica Mountains. Its highest point is the Pansky Hill (Kečka), which attracts tourists from afar. It is a very beautiful, though less known location near the village of Hliník nad Hronom.

The reservation includes about 5 km long circular educational trail, which starts in the village of Lehôtka pod Brehmi, in the part called Mlyn. The trail leads you through the most interesting places in the Panská Mountain. You will get interesting information about these sites from the information panels, which are part of the educational trail too.

The path of the educational trail is initially unpretentious, leading first through a forest path, which quickly changes to a rocky terrain. The walkway also passes around several protected caves (inaccessible to the public), the Great Cave, the cave below Kečka and the Dark Cave.

There are also very interesting sections with the ascend using iron bars with chains between massive rocks. There will also be a variety of rock formations such as drops, rock needles, canyons, rock windows or seas created from ancient stone mining.

From the top parts of Kečka you can enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, neighbouring Szabó's Rock, Kapitulské Boulders, but also Hliník nad Hronom with surrounding villages. The educational trail ends at the Janova lúka (John's meadow~, from where it is necessary to join the forest path back to Lehotka.
