Pelister National Park – Пелистер Национален Парк – National Forest
The entrance to the Pelister National Park near the village of Magarevo (Магарево) is approximately 9 kilometers west (14 minute drive) from the center of the town Bitola. The area is well-marked with signs to guide you to the Information center (see gallery below).
At the information center we found the staff to be very helpful and informative explaining the different types of trails, level of difficulties and time required for particular hikes.
The park encompasses an area of 171.5 square kilometers or 66.2 square miles. The highest point is Pelister Peak in the Baba mountain massif (Baba Planina) 2,601 meters or 8,533 feet above sea level.
