Description

Segment #220 starts from the village of Sveta Petka and goes in eastern direction towards Mt Ostrets and Velingrad.

To get to the starting point you may use segment #240 or the asphalt road from Velingrad to Yundola.

Most of the segment is on forest roads and only the last section from Vazova polyana to Velingrad follows single tracks.

Starting from Sveta Petka, the route goes trough many ups and downs until it gets to the bottom of Mt Ostrets where it traverses from the south.

If you with you may also climb Mt Ostrets itself but have in mind that this task includes a serious push. The segment is marked with blue triangle.
