New Hiking Trail in Turkey


Anyone going to Turkey and looking for a long-distance trail to hike? You're in luck. Although the 310-mile St. Paul's Trail opened in 2004, volunteers are about to finish waymarking the route.

The trail runs from the ancient city of Perge to Yalvac, tracing the path St. Paul took on his first missionary trek into Asia. Along the way, hikers encounter roman ruins, waterfalls, lakes, canyons, and two 9,000-foot peaks.
