  13. The Canyons of Sochi Nature Trail

  14. The Canyons of Sochi Interpretation Trail Решеточник красный (Clathrusruber)– очень редкий гриб, иногда встречающийся в самшитовом лесу The red cage (Clathrus ruber) – a very rare mushroom, which one can see sometimes in a boxwood forest Ящерица прыткая (Lacerta agilis) в брачном наряде | Sand Lizard (Lacerta agilis) , mating season colouring Офрис пчелоносная (Ofrisapifera)слева и Серапиас сошниковый ( Serapiasvomeracea) справа – редкие орхидеи, истинное украшение окрестностейСочи Rare Orchids - The Bee Orchid (Ofris apifera) leftand the Long lipped Serapias (Serapias vomeracea) right - are genuine decoration of Sochi’s environments От полянки с кострищами хорошо набитая тропа вдоль бровки обрыва ведет через самшитовые дебри наверх. Через 900 м некрутого подъема вправо отходит тропинка к пещере Широкопокосской или как ее еще называют, пещере святой Марии. Тропа вьется вниз по крутому склону каньона и вскоре выводит к небольшому карнизу, где и расположена пещера. Длина ее составляет около 50 м, поэтому для ее посещения вам понадобится взять с собой фонарик. Войдя в верхний вход, можно пройти пещеру насквозь, посетив небольшой зал с естественными колоннами и выйти через нижний вход наружу. Во времена сталинских репрессий местные жители использовали пещеру, как подпольную церковь, откуда и пошло ее название – пещера св. Марии. A well-defined trail starts at the meadow with fire pits and runs up through a boxwood grove along the edge of a cliff. After a mild incline of 900m (about half a mile), you'll see a trail branching off to the right towards the Shirokopokosskaya cave, also known as the Cave of St. Mary. The trail zigzags down the steep side of a canyon and soon brings you to a small ledge and the cave entrance. The cave is 50m (54 yards) long and you will need a flashlight to explore it. You can enter the cave through the upper entrance,walk through the entire cave, and exit at the lower opening. Inside you will find a small hall with natural columns. The name of St. Mary's goes back to the era of Stalin's repressions, during which the local people used this cave as an underground church.
