Without doubt this hike is the most beautiful and also the easiest short-cut of the island, from west to east. From Ano Aprovátou to Strapouriés, where the hike stops officially, it is very well indicated by means of the trail marker . The landscape is fantastic all the way long, with at first nice views on the coast near Paleópolis and with an almost “Alps-like feeling” in the part to Pitrofós.
The monopátia were, a few years ago, just beautiful, over the entire length of the hike, but recently a gravel road destroyed the old trail over a length of 20 minutes, a real shame. However, a good part of the path always consists of kalderímia which are very well preserved since it is the very old trail that led from Gávrio and Batsí to Chóra.
