A challenging trail but well worth it.

Need to Know

Great opportunities to stop for food/drink at Banderitsa Meadows, Hizha Banderitsa and Hizha Vihren

Description

Starting from the southern edge of Bansko near the gondola, follow the yellow marked trail that climbs gradually for the first 1.5 km. The trail begins to climb as it parallels the Banderitsa River. At about 4 km, you'll pass the top gondola station and Banderitsa meadows; this provides a great place for a rest.

Immediately following the meadow, the trail begins to steeply climb again, shortly you'll arrive at Hizha Banderitsa (5.3km). The trail now takes to asphalt for a brief 500 m before heading back to singletrack. As you approach Hizha Vihren the trail again regains the road.
