(Vyšehrad) - 829 m nad Nitrianskym Pravnom. Archeologicky skúmaná lokalita od roku 1970. Osídlenie hradiska - doba železná až doba laténska. Vyšehrad bol oddávna predovšetkým strategicky významnou pevnostou na rozhraní Turca a Ponitria a jeho prvoradou úlohou bola kontrola významnej dialkovej cesty (tzv. Jantárovej), ktorá smerovala z Polska cez Turiec do Nitry a dalej na juh. Archeologické pramene dosvedcujú, že svoju funkcnost si hradisko, i ked v zmenšenej miere, udržalo v priebehu 10. a 11. storocia. Znovuobnovenie funkcnosti hradu prebehlo na prelome 13. a 14. storocia v období vlády Matúša Cáka Trencianskeho a v 60. rokoch 15. storocia, ked si na Vyšehrade zriadil svoju operacnú základnu bratrícky velitel Slovácko. Vyšehrad ponúka jedinecný kruhový výhlad na Turiec a Hornonitrie. Cesta na hradisko je zároven aj náucným chodníkom, na ktorom sa návštevník dozvie všetko o histórii, faune a flóre tejto nádhernej lokality.
