This trail was opened recently by EoS Volos and Friends of the Kalderimi and local volunteers at Afetes. It is an interesting and varied path that ascends quite gently to Milies. In a few places our waymarker signs have been removed so some care is needed following the route. An earth road construction has also cut across the path in the middle section and it needs care to descend a few meters of stone to remain on the path. Volunteers will continue to improve these details, but enjoy the walk and use this trail it is beautiful.
Post stolen and red paint mark damaged
At this point we leave an earth road to follow the trail. It only takes one person to remove our waymarker posts and make the trail more difficult, but the effects of this vandalism and theft is to endanger hikers who are relying on following our trail signs.
Our red paint waymark has been removed from a rock at the same location.
The path turns right onto a narrow woodland path (sign removed)
Turn right here and descend onto a woodland path. Waymarker sign removed by theft / vandalism.
A beautiful river crossing.
Waterfall near Milies
Towards the end of this walk we have joined the trail Milies to Neochori. This section also forms part of the South Pelion Trail ( Kato Gatzea to Platania).
