Trail Detailed Description

From Patsianos and Kapsodasos (1), we follow the main road towards the east. Approximately 950 m after the exit of Kapsodasos, we come to a right-hand turn (2) of the main road which passes through the plain in a southerly direction, and after 2,1 km ends exactly in front of the fortress of Frangokastello (3).

We then follow the asphalt road eastwards for 4,5 km and arrive at the village Skaloti (4).

From Skaloti, we continue following the pavedroad eastwards and in 2 km we reach the small village of Argoules (5). After 7,5 km on the main road we arrive at Kato Rodakino (6), having previously crossed the stone bridge over the impressive narrow passage which separates Pano Rodakino from Kato Rodakino.

The route from Frangokastello to Rodakino leads us through the hills between the eastern part of Lefka Ori and the sea, which we can see low to the south, for the best part of our hike. The landscape is dry and infertile at places, yet elsewhere olive groves prevail; the olive industry is the main agricultural occupation in the region.

From Kato Rodakino we can visit the beautiful beach of Korakas, which is located on the outlet of the small valley, 2,5 km south of the village.
