A great trail to the highest peak in the Balkan Peninsula.

Overview

Features: Lake — River/Creek — Views [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Off-leash

Description [Suggest Changes]

The climb starts gradually, and the trail is wide in the lower portions; as you continue up, the climb begins to get steeper. As you come out of the forest before Hizha Musala, you cross a grass section that can be wet all year round. After the Hizha, the trail climbs steeply and changes to rocky singletrack. You weave through lakes until you reach Zasalon Everest. From there is a short steep final section to the peak of Musala.
