Runner Notes

The dirt road has a few steep spots but they are short. The trail itself is a really fun trail run with nice flow.

Description

To reach this trail start in the Village of Hovk on the Transcaucasian Trail and follow a dirt road until you reach the newly built singletrack trail (2018) that takes you to the peak! Once on the trail you'll be under the dense forest canopy. Views from the peak provide a 360 degree view!

This run can be a destination or a side trip on your way to the other wonderful trails in the area.

See the Hike Armenia site and app for lodging, guides and other information about this area.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of birds and spring brings many wildflowers!
