The hike from Velestovo to the Tri Mazi (three men) Peak and back is about 12 km in length with 600 m ascent and descent.
If you go by car to Velestovo, keep in mind that it is a small village with limited parking space.
This relatively short hike was a nice surprise! It was a small trail that apparently is not used a lot, as it was a little bit overgrown at some places, but not so much that it was difficult to find.
The first 7 km are uphill the last 5 km downhill.
After about 1 km from Velestovo, you leave the 4x4 track and take the small trail uphill.
After 5 km, you reach a point where several trails come together, make sure you keep to the left. The signpost that was standing here is broken.
It has nice changes of scenery, from forest to valley and great views of Ohrid from the peak. I probably saw a deer or something similar at a certain moment, but it jumped away too quickly to get a good view.
5 out of 5 stars for this lovely hike!
