A steep, prominent structural erosion ridge of Kozi hrbety lies at an altitude of 1320-1421 m a.s.l. Mining of copper, silver and arsenic ore affected the ridge in the 16th-17th centuries. Currently, access is prohibited for nature conservation reasons and the path leading along the side of Kozi hrbety is usually closed in winters due to avalanche threat. The ridge above Spindleruv Mlyn is part of the Cesky hrbet ridge. Its slopes are covered in large scattered block seas with growths of dwarf pine, spruce and other mountain pines.
