Very rocky, but beautiful trail.

Need to Know

No parking fees, park in the town center or on a side street and run from there. There are many cafes throughout Konispol to enjoy before and after the run, with restrooms available for paying customers (Coffee is 50 lek).

Runner Notes

Difficult footing. Very rocky but the rocks are well set and should not cause you to slip.

Description

Leave from Konispol, going down the stairs near the large Dyqan with Vodafone signs and close to the barber shop. Continue down the trail until you get to a spring, and you'll begin your ascent upward shortly. The trail is VERY rocky and not often clear, but if you follow the GPS track it will be clear when you are near the cave.

Flora & Fauna

Sheep, goats, wild onions, cacti, almond trees, etc.
