Lako Signoj

Lako Signoj

Lako Signoj is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.975m (6,479ft) above the sea level, located in southwestern Republic of Macedonia. The average gradient is 13.64%. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit, located within the National Park Galichica, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Expect a trail pretty steep. Starting from P504 road, at 1.593m above the sea level, the ascent is 2.8km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 382 meters. The average gradient is 13.64%. At the summit there’s a communication tower. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. 
The road is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Along the way there are some caves which were dug between WWI (there was a line of battle across the Galičica). The summit offers beautiful views on Ohrid and Prespa lakes.
