Some photos from the summit Prosek (there are situated some ancient ruins)
Overview of the route is in the picture from google map. After passing the summit you will see footpath curving near cell towers. After you will reach a road make a turn on the left. Please, be careful, don’t miss the turn on the left to the small road to the stone-pit (otherwise you’ll go to the Turkish village and will make 6 km extra!). On the stone-pit level you should make short cut to (down) very nice footpath. It will led you to the motorway bridges - begin of the route.
