This trail will take you to the highest point in the whole network of routes in this part of the Balkans – the peak Gorno Yazovo. The first few kilometers you’ll follow the road to Martinovo and then close to the abandoned gold mine you’ll take the right to enter the trail to Gorno Yazovo. The trail takes you through a well maintained curvy mountain road. Shortly before the final assault of the Gorno Yazovo peak you can take the right for a fabulous down ride to the village of Prevala or continue until you climb the 1572m high mount with great panorama view.

Then comes the nice part – going down to the village of Gorni Lom. Mind the ditches in the curves! Here you can stay at a guesthouse or if you have some more powers left continue to Falkovets or hut Gorski rai or Chuprene.
