Trail Detailed Description

From the beach of Karoumes (1), we walk along the stream for approximately 500 m, until the entrance to the gorge; this is smaller than the gorge of Zakros, yet it does not lack natural beauty and interesting geological formations.

We walk through the gorge for about 1.500 m, until its western outlet, where we see an information sign, at the end of a dirt road (2).

We next follow a dirt road, along the northern bank of the stream, and after approximately 600 m we pass onto the southern bank and reach a parking area, where a small chapel (3) can be seen. From the chapel and on we continue westwards, until the village of Hohlakies (4); we arrive there after approximately 400 m, right where we come upon the main road that connects Zakros with Palekastro
