Die grasbewachsene Tiefebene zwischen den Bergen Belasica und Ograzden bildet den Anfang dieser Etappe.

Die bulgarische Stadt Petric, zu Füßen der Belasica-Bergkette, bietet einen idealen Ort zum Erfrischen und Auftanken. Die Route führt weiter auf von Pinienwäldern gesäumten Wegen durch die Region der Pomaken, bulgarischsprachige Muslime. Ein Minarett einer Moschee erhebt sich über den umliegenden Gebäuden im Verwaltungszentrum von Dospat. Zlatograd ist die südlichste Stadt Bulgariens, die sich im Rhodopengebirge befindet, und von hier aus gelangt der Weg in griechisches Gebiet, vorbei an der malerischen Stadt Petrotá mit ihren hellen, gepflegten Gebäuden und Gärten.
