Really fun trail, some sections extremely eroded and some minor scrambling necessary. The last part of the descent into Agia Roumeli was a little challenging, very crumbly and hard to find the path- but it was after sundown so it may have been well marked.

From the Turkish ruins on Cape Tripiti, all downhill, some sections very eroded or washed out. Domata is lovely. We swam at the far east end.

Trail starts on a dirt road heading out of Paleochora. The path is rocky in some areas. Just lovely. Not difficult, we are carrying 50 lb backpacks. Beautiful views. Camped on the beach in Lissos, absolutely gorgeous.

Beautiful trail, not too busy on October 22nd. Would rate as moderate as the trail itself is very easy, just long.

Wonderful hike- absolutely gorgeous. Starting early is key, avoids the mad rush of people and there’s more shade in the canyon than if you went through it mid day. Very rocky and the first kilometer or so is fairly steep so it’s hard on your knees. If you head out of the state park and walk (or catch a van ride down) 3km to the port, there is the most gorgeous water I’ve ever seen. The beach is free and renting a chair is 7 euro. Make sure to pack your bathing suit and take a dip on the Mediterranean Sea! We took a bus to the top and caught a ferry and bus to get back to Chania. (I think the company was called Elafannosis) Zero problem with the company but take drammamine for the bus rides. Those mountain roads are killer!

Amazing canyon and beach. But we did half of trail with car. As we had kids and grandmoms, lucky we did that. First half would be dusty road with cars passing by. If possible, recommend going all the way to canyon parking with car.

I recommend this trail for moderately experienced hikers. Wear HIKERS! It is so rocky. I did it in running shoes and I'm sure the feet are bruised. Dont rush this hike. Stop, look around at this most amazing and breath taking planet! The views are breath taking. It will make your heart sing!

This hike was stunningly beautiful and the beach at the end while waiting for the ferry absolutely amazing as well. Certainly a bucket-list-worthy hike. A few things to keep in mind I didn’t know going in: - the terrain is very rocky almost the whole way through. Expect to be stepping on/between rocks the whole time. Some are pointy, some are smooth, some are slippery, so keep that in mind as well. I did this hike in my train running shoes, and felt totally fine as a decently active regular hiker. Someone in my group had standard running shoes (Nike) and her feet were painful by the end. Something with a piece of plastic in the sole will help. - if you start the trail after 8:30a (ie you take a bus up to the trailhead) you’ll be trekking among hundreds of people almost the whole way through. Even on a weekday in the end of September, it’s tough to get away from the crowds. Most people are total amateur “hikers” who seem mildly offended when you want to pass them, even if you ask nicely (keep in mind most people wont speak English as their first language so asking nicely is not straightforward). Personally, I find this detracts significantly from the hiking experience but the beauty of the hike and the beach make it worth it anyways. - there is significant water gathering opportunities along the way. You really don’t need more than 1 L. I would recommend carrying empty bottles to fill at the end though if your trip home is long. - I had a pretty bad tour bus experience with KTEL. Would recommend avoiding them if possible. Didn’t have another way to get to the trailhead and shot myself in the foot with this one. If you do choose to take a tour bus, try to book your stay in Crete in Chania or somewhere closer to the trailhead so you won’t spend as much time traveling. - be careful driving on the mountain roads on Crete. Watch out for goats! Hopefully this review is helpful. Overall, I loved this experience and hope to return again someday :)

wow, belle randonnée, facile a suivre. Du départ jusqu'a la taverne sur la plage, ma montré Garmin indiquait 19.3km. On a débuté a 7:35am, peu de monde. Une fois la trail complétée, nous avons mangé chez Rousios (Taverne), excellent et ensuite loué un parasol et 2 chaises (7 euros) pour une sieste en attendant le traversier de.17:30. pas besoin de guide:)

Excellent hike and beautiful! More shade than I thought, but we started at 8AM from the top. We were on one of the first busses to arrive. There are a lot of drinking water spots to refill, I certainly didn’t need to bring 3L of water like I did. Very steep and hard on the knees in the beginning, but the 2nd half is much flatter. Def recommend, but it is a long one!

A rocky and crowded trail with any inexperienced hikers. It has about a 3,000 foot drop and 10+ mile length. Most beautiful is the “Iron Gate,” the narrow section near the bottom.

The trail was NOT well marked and therefore often difficult to find. Quite difficult track and not for children or beginners. A nice track for well conditioned wandere.

It was alright. The top of the lighthouse is closed which was disappointing. If you’re in the area and want a little walk in the sun it’s worth checking out. You might have a split moment to snap a shot of the lighthouse without many people but so many take pictures on the stairs and others have no regard for people trying to take photos and will walk right into the shot. There was a really smelly part that stunk like a bathroom that hasn’t been washed in years. If you walk the top ledge it gets kinda rocky, there’s stairs at the end but many older people hop off as it gets really bad.

We went from Loutro only as far as Marmara Beach. It’s a tricky route with lots of steep ascents and scrambling along the cliff side. I have to admit we didn’t think it would be quite so difficult. There is another way that takes you along the road but we opted for the cliff side - not sure if that was such a good decision! It is truly beautiful and memorable. It’s also good advice to start very early. We left Loutro at 7am and got to Marmara at 8.45. It was already really hot. We then got a water taxi to take us back to Loutro.

Absolutely stunning. Everything we wanted and more. It’s not too difficult - it’s entirely downhill (don’t trust the AllTrails altitude guide, it’s way off). I knocked a star off for the shear number of people. Many points during the day we were in standstill from a constant traffic jam. Get up early!! Still absolutely worth it though. Especially getting to the seaside and diving into crystal clear water. Amazing.

Really cool terrain hiking down a famous gorge in Crete. Dramatic gorge walls after the old Samaria village halfway down. Because of popularity it is a very busy trail (at least when I hiked mid-August). If I came back I would hike one of the other less crowded gorges. That said, scenery is spectacular and I don’t regret walking down. Bonus to this hike is that it ends at a beach so you can jump in the water to cool down.
