Ölüdeniz (Fethiye) - Antalya, 500 km. 

Kate Clow did us a great favor by compiling this first long distance trail in Turkey. The trail is made up of local paths, along many old Lycian ruins and through little rural villages. The trail is marked, and the marking is maintained. The impact of the trail on the local economy is of some importance, since hikers "shop" and sleep in the villages, and local guides get the opportunity to help groups.
It is rather exceptional to be able to make self-guided tours in a country that does not have any hiking tradition.

The trail follows the coast. Sometimes it turns inland, climbing into mountain ranges up to 1700 m. Best time is spring: april - may. Kate Clow's guidebook is indispensible, in combination with maps.
