Trail Detailed Description

We walk along the narrow, picturesque alleys of the village of Pefki (1) and follow the asphalt road south-west of the village for approximately 250 m. We then turn left into a rough dirt road (2), which passes through an olive grove and then leads us to a footpath which passes next to an old watermill (3).

The unsurfaced road runs along the edge of the western wall of the gorge of Pefki for approximately 500 m; next it turns right and descends to the bed of the gorge (4), which features exceptionally beautiful formations and dense vegetation

For approximately 1.000 m we follow the rough bed of the gorge and then come upon a dirt road (5), which we take in a southerly direction for about 1.300 m, to the settlement of Aspros Potamos (6).

After Aspros Potamos we cross the water course; the dirt road continues to run parallel to its eastern bank for approximately another 1.500 m, until it reaches the coastal settlement of Makrygialos (7).
