From Kokkinopelos it crosses a forested mountain, then a quiet tarmac road around the mountainside to the attractive village of Livadi. Visit the bar of the Mytikas hotel for great views back to Mount Olympus. After Livadi the trail drops down to the plains, a mix of farmland and rough grassland and trees, before climbing up to the village of Saradaporos. In the valley beyond this village is an abandoned monastery, worth a visit before climbing through woodland of small oaks to the small village of Tsapournia. Climbing further takes you onto an open ridge at the top of the Amarvis mountains, before the trail plunges down a wooded valley and onto the village of Livadero (where tourists seem pretty rare).
After Livadero the trail follows a track through grassland and trees to the next mountains (the Kamvounia range) beyond which there is the town of Descati. From Descati the route follows tarmac roads and tracks through woodland to Meterora, famous for its monasteries built of pillars of rocks to ensure the monks had peace and quiet to pray and meditate on the almighty. Not so easy now with large volumes of tourists visiting.
