Trail Detailed Description

After the Kato Metochi village square, at the south-eastern exit of the village (1), we leave the asphalt road and enter a dirt road on our left, which passes through the plateau, among cultivated fields. We continue straight on, in a south-easterly direction. After 1.000 m we bypass the settlement of Agios Charalambos (2) to the north. We then turn southwards and walk straight on the dirt road for approximately 1,3 km, ignoring any turn-offs that we come by (which are quite a few), until we reach the main road, at the western exit of the village of Psychro (3), south of which the famous Dictaean Cave is to be found.

Having passed through the centre of Psychro, we turn left (4) just before its eastern exit and follow an unsurfaced road straight on. This dirt road, which crosses the southern part of the plateau in a due easterly direction, after 2,7 km leads us to Agios Georgios (5).
