Description

Take the trail to the left about 3 kilometers from the beginning of the Pancharevo Lake Side. The trail climbs rapidly over the next kilometer while curving along the hillside. You exit from the forest under power lines to a beautiful vista to your left.

Continue another 100 meters to a quick downhill before the trail begins to climb again. Just before you reach 2 kilometers from the beginning of the trail, a building (chalet) will appear on your right.

Here you take the trail to the left leading straight downhill. It can be muddy depending on the conditions, and after a hundred meters, the trail turns sharply to the right as you follow a cliff edge.

Shortly after, you'll come to the lookout over Lake Pancharevo and Vitosha. The trail continues downhill gradually over smooth singletrack. As you approach the Direct German - Lozan Ridge trail, there is a sharp up and down before you come to the trail's end.
