Junction to the Olive Oil Press Hiking Trail

General information

This trail, like many others, starts at the Junction. But here you do not walk in the forest, but on an unpaved road. You see very impressive rocks, the Elisson river, a very old bridge, an old abandoned mill and the olive oil press. The last part of the trail overlaps with the Pirona hiking trail.
This trail can be very well connected with the Elisson river trail.
