We refuel, turn around and continue on previous path. After only 100 m., we approach the fork of trails. We follow the sign and choose the right trail, which descends the Mount 1033 from its southern side, the side where Florina is situated. The oak trees give their place to pine trees and after descending 1.6K, the trail finishes as we pass through the first house of the city.
