Trail Detailed Description

From Alones (1), we descend to the ravine and walk along it.

After about 2 km, we step onto the eastern bank, on a rather uphill dirt road (2), that 600 m further along leads us to the small agricultural settlement of Velonado (3). There, we reach the main road, which we follow northwards.

After 550 m, we come to a small ravine and a bridge (4), on which an E4 sign can be seen.

We ignore this sign; it directs to the section of the path that leads to the village of Moundros

We continue for 250 m on the main road. Slightly before a left turn, we see an E4 sign on our right, as well as the beginning of an old path (5); by way of this path, having descended to a small dry water course, we begin to climb the slope in a northerly direction, towards a small saddle (6), where a characteristic solitary tree can be seen.

After a saddle, we reach a slightly downhill, bare slope, which we follow for approximately 700 m, in a due north direction. We then come to an area full of carob trees and bushes, where we see a sheepfold and a dirt road (7)

We follow the unsurfaced road for 950 m and we then come to an eastern turn (8) (in the first 100 m of which one can see a chapel of Panagia). We continue northwards and after 200 m we pass through an old, deserted settlement (9).

Continuing along the dirt road, which by now begins to turn eastwards, we come first to a south-easterly branch and then to a south-westerly one. We ignore both and continue northwards. At the end of the unsurfaced road we come to an animal shed (10) and begin to descend towards the bed of averdant ravine, aiming for a hut on the opposite slope; this we must pass by on our right-hand side, as we ascend the slope.

Passing through the ravine is quite difficult, because there is neither a footpath nor any mark until the top of the slope. There, we come to a cart track (11), which we follow in a rather north-westerly direction for about 250 m, until a crossroads (12), where we take the north-western fork. 

After 150 m (13), we follow a northerly direction; after another 250 m, we reach the first houses of the Agios Georgios village, as well as a track branching to the south-east, which we ignore.

We continue northwards and arrive at Agios Georgios (14), and at the main road which we follow eastwards until Agios Konstantinos (15)
