Trail Detailed Description

We follow the main road which passes through Kastelli (1) from west to east, and then begin to climb the hills east of the plain of Kastelli.

After 3 km of ascent through the hills, on the asphalt road, enjoying a magnificent view to the west, we arrive at Xidas (2), a village built on a slope beneath the summit where the ruins of Ancient Lyktos are to be found. 

From Xidas, we continue on the asphalt road, and after 4 km we reach Kastamonitsa (3), at the western foot of Mount Dikti.
