The Carian Trail is an 820 km long-distance footpath exploring the South Western corner of Turkey through the modern provinces of Muğla and Aydın. The trail is new and winds through some of the lesser known regions of Turkey.
The trail was explored and mapped beginning in 2009 was opened by Yunus Özdemir, Altay Özcan and Dean Livesley. It was opened for travel in 2013.
The trail is named after the Carian civilization, indigenous people of Asia Minor. It passes through an area with many ancient ruins.Stone paved caravan roads and mule paths connect villages from the coast to a mountaineous hinterland. There are pine forest covered mountain slopes, olive terraces and almond groves which are an important part of the region’s economy.
The trail is signed and waymarked allowing both independent and group travellers to hike and enjoy the scenic beauty and cultural treasures of Caria.
