The sources of the River Kamienczyk are in the upper parts of the Hala Szrenicka enclave at an altitude of 1260 m a.s.l. When many nameless tributaries merge into a stream, it flows through a stony riverbed through a remarkably modelled valley. At an altitude of 840 m a.s.l. there is a three-step cascade waterfall, with its height of 27 m making it the highest in the western part of the Krkonose. A deep gorge under the waterfall, nearly 100 m in length, was created by backward erosion due to a gradual regression of the waterfall head.
