Desperate roads, trails and goat paths are connected in a single path that stretches 509 kilometres. The trail is marked with red and white marks, in some places they are more common, in others less common. Sometimes completely lost or hidden in dense vegetation. There are numerous signs along the trail. They show the direction to the nearest historical attractions or large settlements. You can go on a path without a guide, of course, you may end up astray, however, that is all part of the adventure and as long as you go with friends and GPS you will be able to enjoy the great outdoors of Turkey.
