Booking.com asked travelers...What's your best piece of advice for a first-time hiker in Borovets?
If you have good fitness level, you can make it all the way to the top of Musala. I went there in winter and summer and I am not a professional hiker, but it turned out to be not that hard, but do train a bit in advance with other peaks. There is a spring you can get water on the way close to the top, right before Everest haven.
Booking.com asked travelers...How can you enjoy the sights in Borovets while avoiding the crowds?
Yes! The queue for getting tickets for the gondola is not that long, nor is the line for getting on it. The maximum capacity of one gondola is 6 people. Take the condola and you will enjoy a great view. The city also offers good sights, when I was there - in August - it was not crowded at all.
Booking.com asked travelers...How could Borovets protect their nature trails better?
Would be good to do more detailed maps for summer time walking. Routes were sometimes confusing and a decent map would have helped. Protect the area. Don't build any more. Have nature and bear tours. Make it more widely known which days the lifts and gondola are running in summer.

Musala Peak is just a days' hike or less depending on your speed from Yaztrabetz lift station round trip. The August season was great weather, small crowds, no waiting for gondola lift or service at restaurants.
