A little boring, monotonous trail. Not very interesting for teens, and also for younger kids. The advantages are lots of shade and cold streams. Very nice for a hot day

The path takes you alongside of stream of water and small waterfalls. Very peacefull walk just outside the village. Not hard and can be done with children.

When nature has something ready-made for you the only thing you need to do is visit. Nice easy walk next to a stream. Perfect for the summer, at least ten degrees cooler than street level. Some looking after is necessary.

Beautifull walks along old donkey roads. Green hills, bays, streams and beaches. Drinkable water almost everywhere.

The best start to your day after a traditional breakfast with Pelian goodies, good for young families as you don't need any special gear to complete this easy uphill hike next to streams of fresh water coming down from the top of the mountain

Nice stroll around the village. Not very well organized, in need of more signs and arrows throughout. Very little nature sceneries in comparison what the broader area of pilio can offer.
