Runner Notes

Mostly smooth dirt roads with some short, steep sections in the canyon.

Description

Starting in Karmir Shuka, follow the trail up to the huge, 2,000-year-old tree. Continue along the trail which heads past the tree and then down to the highway again. You cross the highway and follow the trail into Sargsashen Canyon.

You'll have to run through the river several times. You'll eventually cross a dirt road and then come to a waterfall area. Enjoy the water, but don't let the leeches enjoy you. Continue along the dirt road without any turnoffs, straight into Avetaranots Village.

There is an old Convent and Church in Avetaranots that are worth a visit.

Flora & Fauna

You'll see lots of blackberries everywhere especially in the canyon. These vines have thorns and grow quickly so be careful. In the fall time, you'll have lots of blackberries to snack on.
