The eco-trail to Edelweiss huts tarts from the Golden Bridges to the right of the trail to Kumata hut.
The route is short and easy, the markings and signs are well defined.
There are signs for Edelweiss hut, Selimitsa hut, and Kladnitsa, which we follow in this part of the road.
You cross an asphalt road and continue on the path, reaching Pancho Tomov hut, which does not seem to be functioning, but there are places for recreation where you can gather strength.
The next road marker is a fork, where you diversify the route to the right in the direction of Selimitsa hut / Kladnitsa village and do not go directly to hut Edelweiss.
The path becomes narrower and overgrown with bushes, but you continue boldly through the bushes.
Be careful not to miss the monument to G.S.Rakovski, elevated on a rock on the left, because it merges with the landscape.
Passing through a wooded area, you come out on a flat and spacious place.
We even saw a sports facility for training here!
You reach an asphalt road and turn right on it. There is no sign here, so be careful where you go!
Continue to the restaurant Pancheto, which is a slight deviation to the right of the road.
There is a sign for Edelweiss hut before him.
Continue on the road passing by the restaurant, reaching a wooden sign for Edelweiss hut, which is the endpoint of the route.
You can stay for a meal and a drink in the hut, then go around it to return to our starting point – the Golden Bridges.
Following the signs for the Golden Bridges, you descend and pass another marker on the road to the right – the monument of Yavorov, in the region of Opheliite.
Again, adjust your watchful eye so as not to miss it for objective reasons.
After Pancho Tomov hut, be careful not to miss the turnoff to the right for the Golden Bridges and cross the bridge.
Otherwise you go to Vladaya.
Although we passed the route in light rain and at the end of the working day before sunset, we managed to enjoy the tranquility of the quiet forest and the gentle roar of the streams along the way.
