Trail Detailed Description

We set off at the Dafni village square (1) in a southerly direction. We pass next to the cemetery and take a dirt road that goes left (eastwards), parallel to a steep slope.

Approximately 900 m after the village, at the end of the steep slope, we leave the dirt road and take a vague path (2), in a rather south-easterly direction. After approximately 700 m, we come upon another unsurfaced road (3), which we follow southwards. 

We ignore a left-hand turn-off and continue southwards for about 1.000 m; we then leave the dirt road and follow a path (4) which is not clear, in a due southerly direction. We walk for 700 m, to a flat area where the beginning of a small gorge (5) can be seen.

We walk along the bed of the gorge for approximately 1.000 m; we then leave it and take the rough footpath, walking on its western side, where a characteristic fig tree can be seen, at the entrance of the Vreiko cave (6).

From the cave and on we walk on a clear path. After approximately 250 m we reach a parking area (7) and an asphalt road, which we follow for about 150 m; we then turn right into a dirt road that leads us to the northern side of a characteristic rocky summit (8), on top of which there is a picturesque chapel

From the northern side of this rock we follow the easily distinguishable footpath that meanders on its eastern side; after approximately 1.000, we arrive at the village of Pefki (9)
