T1 Misi – Doğancı Ridge (Valley route)
The 9 kilometres long first part of Trans Mysia Way advances on old forest paths. Villagers of the mountain region have used these paths for long years in order to come to the city and return to their villages. These trails have been used not only by villagers in Nilüfer district, but also from more remote settlements in the districts of Orhaneli and Keles. As Trans Mysia Trail 1 starts rising from its beginning at Misi, it requires good physical condition.
As it can be seen from the map, one can enter Trans Mysia Trail from the upper part of the village of Misi. The route starts in front of the mosque at Misi central square and passes among the houses of traditional architecture of İpekyolu Street until it reaches the upper end of the village. The area where the direction signs are found is also the starting point for the Horse Riding Trail and Hiking Trail P1, which connects Misi to Dağyenice Pond passing inside the village of Dağyenice.
This apparent trail first crosses a garden area and then it continues following existing forest paths. From the western slope of Nilüfer valley the trail rises parallelly to the Orhaneli-Keles road. The 5 kilometres long first part of the trail, passes through pine forests and draws a wide arc towards the West. Then it rises on from the slope of Kocaceviztepe passing below Taşlıkburnu, until it reaches the area South of Dağyenice Quarter. The unpaved road next to the direction sign you will see in front of you, is connected after approximately 700 metres to Hiking Trail P1 advancing om the road linking Misi to Dağyenice. After 100 metres the valley road trail enters the forest again, it advances in the East of Kirazlı Ridge and terminates at Doğancı Ridge, near Türkmenharmanı Hill. The unpaved road passing for the endpoint of the trail links the settlements of Doğancı and Atlas to one another. If you turn to the right next to the fountain and walk for 500 metres, you will have reached the starting point of Trans Mysia Trail 2.
