Zeza Canyongreen hiking


Summary: A short but very interesting hike - between two old bridges - in the canyon that separates Gamnit and Kruja mountains. The train follows an ancient path, and steem seems to be in good use. The trail, generally, is broad and easy, but take care at some exposed spots.


The idea and the map are taken from Endrit Shima on Wikiloc, where more information can be found.  Also check out  Endrit's trails on his blog for related information and other trails.

General location and approach: Leave Tirana via Kamez towards Kruja. The trail coordinates start on this road. Follow the road to Kurcaj, and on across the Zeza River. Drive up on the other side and park in front of a quarry.


Other Information: Walk through the quarry, keep as low (near the river) as possible. The original path has been destroyed through quarry activities. It emerges very close to the river bed.
