As we were building the new segment in 2017 we would often see three Hawks soaring gracefully above us near the cliffs. We thought the Three Hawks Trail would be a fitting name.

 

The loop trail passes through the Sartsapat Mountains and connects to the TransCaucasian Trail (TCT).

 

 

From a high point on the dirt road, we created a new trail that connects to what appears to be an ancient trail switchbacking through the cliffs. From a distance, you would never imagine there would be a trail through this place. From the high point, the trail passes through a high meadow and connects to the TCT.

 

 

This high point also provides some incredible views! This trail also provides access from the TCT to the village of Hovk where a through hiker could resupply and have a homestay.

 

In October 2018 we marked the trail with red and white blazes. This trail will be included in the upcoming Dilijan National Park map.
