Need to Know

The trail is currently overgrown, but it will be resurfaced and a new bridge on the sreek will be built.

Runner Notes

Might be muddy especially in spring alojng the southern section. The creek crossing is still tricky after a recent flood.

Description

The terrain is practically flat overall. The route is almost straight. With the construction of the new wide bridge that I proposed, the route will become even more direct and convenient.

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.

Flora & Fauna

Woodpeckers, Treecreepers, Nutchatch, warblers, wrens, thrushes.
