Description

When you reach a junction with dirt roads heading in three directions, take the right one and head roughly south. You'll reach a small renovated church overlooking the town. There is also drinking water available at the spot. To the left of the church, the actual trail begins. This is its steepest section and you climb up for 10 - 15 minutes until you reach a col. After the col you begin your gradual descent into the valley that eventually reaches Zlatolist and Katuntsi to the south.

Enjoy the views as you drop into Zlatolist, as the descent is mostly mellow, allowing you to pick your eyes up from your feet.

Sandstone formations surrounding the town of Melnik in Bulgaria. The region has a lot to offer in terms of hiking, biking as well as cultural and historical sites. It is also famous for its red wine.
