The protected area Hadí Vrch (Snaky Hill) is situated between the road, which leads between the small towns Nová Bystřice and Staré Město pod Landštejnem, and the Czech-Austrian border, about 5  km south-west of Staré Město pod Landštejnem.

This area was not open to the public for a long time during the communist era - after the Second World War till 1990. The nature reserve of the same name was established in the part of this area near the boundary. It is about 13 ha large and it was founded for the protection of the mixed forest of pines, spruces and birches.

The access to the rerserve is possible from the small village Návary (about 5 km south-west of Staré Město pod Landštejnem).
