2 -3 hours
Guided or self-guided
Distance: 6-7 km
This trail begins at the Reserve’s Visitor Center and takes you to the Soap House in the neighboring village of
Orjan. On the way, you will hike through thick, healthy woodlands filled with oak, pistachio, and oriental
strawberry trees. Take a short detour to view a ruined wine press before you pass one of the oldest strawberry trees in the Reserve on your way down into the valley.
The trail climbs to 1100m above sea level at Eagle’s View Point, and then descends to the Soap House
where local women follow the traditional process of making Orjan pure olive soap.
* You can continue walking The Houses Trail or the Village Tour once you have reached The Soap House.
