Lycian Way GPS and waypoints

We went for 9 days along the Lycian Way in May of this year from Ovacik and ends at Myra. Some bits we took a dolmus and some bits we walked sections in reverse order. Hike is from Ovacik to the book and map is not particularly easy. The markers are difficult to detect fairly regularly, some sections were changed due to new agricultural buildings, new roads of villages, landslides, etc. A section, we went in reverse was difficult as it is very difficult to read the thick descriptions in reverse. However, it is still feasible. By the way just about everyone we met Kate's book found less than easy to follow - in fact, too much description and not clear enough route guidance. The card is not large and contains errors. We used a GPS and found it very helpful.

The sections we did not stay out in Kalkan, which was very touristy. We saw very few hikers every day - maybe 1 or 2 days and a total of hikers with whom we do several days in the same met a few - about 6 / 8 people in total on a number of occasions. We did with a man and walked with him for about 3 days which was great especially since it one of the evenings that we were camping included - a longitudinal distance between villages.

Lycian Way Signs

The Standard Directory of Lycian Way is half white, half red rectangle. There is no uniform distance between the marks along the route when the road start business, to turn and they have become more frequent, and is where the route as a straight line, turning into an easily visible path, then they become less frequent. They are usually painted on the rocks along the route, although you can spot something on utility poles, garden walls, or on the actual path itself.

Side ways lost the main path and usually very arrival in off-the-beaten-path locations (in the literal sense) - Brands Have similar to the standard rectangles replaced only know yellow.

Kate Clow Biography

Name: Kate Clow (Kardelen Karli)
Born: Hitchin, Herts, England, 1947.

I've always been crazy about old roads. I like to look at a landscape and imagine past travellers; who they were, where they were going, what they were trading. Turkey has so many thousands of years of history, practically every mountain has a well-used pass, practically every river a ford or a bridge. And in the forests or along the valley sides, there are still traces of the roads that linked them.
Education: English High Schools (to 1965). Technical computer training, then Open University Accounting and Marketing Diplomas (to 1988). Istanbul University International Management Diploma (to 1992).
Employment: Computer programmer, British Aerospace (to 1967);
Production and computer management, Unwins Printing Group (to 1974);
Computer manager for Bank of Boston subsidiary, London (to 1985);
Sales account executive (technical); worked on major government and private accounts, Wang Computers, London (to 1989);
Sales account executive (technical), World Bank contracts, Transcom (a Wang subsidiary), Istanbul and Ankara (to 1993). Source

Lycian Tour Complete kmz

To have seen and read about the walk as one of 10 large migrations of the world, I was expecting something else. Without doubt it has some high points, the ruins of Olympus, Kekova, and kayaking on the sunken city, and the coastal sections on foot were very good, but do not offer mountains of dramatic peaks, often seem a little boring, with the vegetation very shaggy in many parts. That is, it was not unpleasant, and the Turkish people were very friendly and hospitable, with hiking opportunities during the trip without a guide to the villages and cities allows us to more rural life in Turkey seen as expected. Not the classic Trek I expected, but still quite a pleasant journey.
