The project is implemented by the Environmental Association Zdravec 2002 from Makedonska Kamenica and has an objective to conserve biodiversity on Osogovo Mountains.
Activities implemented until now:
- Two trails that lead to the highest summits on Osogovo Mountains have been marked. They are as follows:
The first trail: Starting from the Monastery settlement “Elenec” – Jurucki Grobista – Kitka to Carev Vrv (2085 meters above the sea level). This trail is 11 km long and on the trail locations have been selected where a panorama viewing post will be located, in the place known as Kitka. Besides this the mountain fountain will be improved, an informational board will be set up at the beginning of the trail at the monastery settlement of Elenec and locations have been chosen for positioning the five direction boards which will give directions on how to reach Carev Vrv. Additionally five garbage beans have been set up.
The second trail: This trail starts at the Sasa Mine – Sumska Baraka – Ajducka Ceshma – military viewing point Soko to the summit of Ruen (2252 meters above the sea level). This trail is 13 km long and locations have been chosen to set up panorama viewing posts at the place called Ajducka Cesma. Additionally the mountain fountain will be improved and an informational board will be set up at the beginning of the Sasa Mine. Locations have been selected for the five direction boards which will direct hikers how to reach Ruen and five trash bins have been set up.
