Trail begins near a medieval fortress complex (http://www.inlviv.info/tours/files/Tustan/Tustan.pdf) and passes two additional sites on rock formations after the first climb. The trail then climbs through wildflower pasture before meeting an access road on the ridge above. We were attempting a full loop, but the return trail that is shown on the All Trails topo map is not marked, and we couldn't find it. In general the trails in this area are poorly marked, and maps are not always accurate. The fortress complex is extremely interesting, and has additional shorter and better-established trails that are worth exploring (I would give these other trails five stars) Entrance to the park is 40 UAH and includes entrance to a museaum & cultural center.
