“A pleasant and direct flat route through the forest away from boulevard's traffic—a green heaven in the city.”— Kamen Ruskov
The trail connects the busy neghbourhood of Lozenets (and the nearby subway station, the National Nature and Maths High School, etc) with the Sofia zoo and the adjacent sections of Vitosha and Dianabad districts, thus providing a viable altrenative to car use.
Coming from the zoo, the trail begins conveniently at the north edge of the parking lot and the east zoo entrance. After some 50 m of meadow, you enter into the woods and continue north. North of the creek, one can turn left towards Tokuda hospital or continue north along this trail toward Lozenets district. There is a comfortable underpass under the Vaptsarov Blvd. fitted with an auxiliary elevator.
