We follow the road from Agouseliana to Paleoloutra and turn at the first branch (1) of the asphalt road, in a south-easterly direction.
The route now passes through the big olive grove of the plain of Agios Vasilios.
After 1,6 km on the asphalt road, we reach a small ravine on our right-hand side. We cross a small bridge (2) onto a dirt road, which we follow straight, eastwards, for 500 m. We then come again to the asphalt road (3), which after 1.5 km leads us to the eastern side of the settlement of Koxare. There, we reach the main road (4) that connects Rethymnon and Plakias.
From Koxare, we follow the asphalt road that leads southwards, to Plakias. After 2 km, we come to a vague dirt road (5) on our left-hand side, which goes down to a water course, in a north-easterly direction.
After approximately 200 m, we cross onto its eastern bank, and follow the unsurfaced road parallel to the water course, for about 300 m.
We then turn right and follow the main dirt road, initially in an easterly and then in a south-easterly direction, ignoring any turn-offs.
After 1,5 km, we see a small chapel to our right, and then we pass through the small village of Agίa Pelagia (6). We then continue on the asphalt road for about 300 m, until the village of Mixorouma (7) and the main road that connects Rethymnon and Spili.
We continue on the main road and, having passed through Dariviana (8), we arrive at Spili (9).
