Kate is the pioneer. She and her team annually waymark the Lycian Way and St. Paul's Trail in Turkey. They are expanding in the eastern mountains I believe. This book comes with an invaluable map. The trail can get damaged by the goats and disappear in parts. I went in July - brutal heat as in 40 degrees. I was gulping 12L a day. The villagers are tremendously friendly, inviting you in for tea, food and lodging. Tip generously. The more TUrkish you know, the better. Most have never been to Istanbul - so show pictures of the Blue Mosque and your guidebooks. Lykia Yolu, especially in the down season, is a true treasure to go back in time amongst ruins and gentle farmers atop the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. If you go to Kabak Valley (YOU MUST), stay with Ece and Orhan at Turan Camping. Best food and place ever. Life in this part of the world is the best.
