Samaria Gorge Trail is a 11.1 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Samariá, Crete, Greece that features a river. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
Mostly downhill on some loose gravel. Easy enough walk but you are occasionally sharing the trail with donkeys. The trail follows a clear creek that you can drink from and passes many Byzantine ruins.
Amazing hike. Took us about five hours. Don't forget to stop and look around once in awhile the views are stunning.
Summer 2008 - Incredible trek through the gorge. Trail is beautiful throughout.
Great and scenic! A beautiful hike! The trail was a little crowed at times but well worth it!
Steeped in history and a cafe at the trailhead doesn't get much better than that, the gorge was breathtaking.
