Trail Detailed Description

From the square at the northern exit of Moundros (1), we follow the road in a rather south-easterly direction and after 150 m we pass by a chapel.

We continue uphill on a distinct path for another 400 m and then we come to a dirt road (2) which we follow southwards, into a small, bare valley, where a stream and the ruins of an old watermill can be seen.

After 1,5 km, and having exited the valley, we follow a left branch (3) of the dirt road for 500 m and then turn left (4) and follow the central dirt road, ignoring any branches. After 600 m, we follow a left branch (5), ignore the next two left ones, as well as two right ones, and we walk through a small water course (6) with plane trees.

We continue on the central dirt road in a rather south-easterly direction and after 1,5 km we come to a water course. Immediately after, we are in the bed of another water course, which joins into the first one, beneath enormous plane trees.

This is the area named Nifis Potamia (7) (= rivers of a bride-to-be), where according to tradition, a beautiful girl was drowned, on her way to thewedding ceremony.

There is running water from a fountain; this is a perfect spot to rest or pass the night, weather permitting.

Having left the water course, we continue eastwards, following a dirt road. After 1 km we come to an asphalt road (8), which we follow in a south-easterly direction, until the village of Agouseliana (9), where we arrive after approximately 3 km.
