The beginning of the route starts at the eastern end of Kirilova Polyana. Many of the priority species for conservation in Rila Monastery Nature Park are rare or threatened, and sensitive to the ever more aggressive human impact and presence. These include Rheum rhaponticum and Rila Primula deorum, which are found in the park. Rheum rhaponticum is one of the local endemics in Rila, included in the Bulgarian and European list of rare and endangered species, as well as in the Red Book of Bulgaria.
