on Mount Eros Loop Trail

1 month ago

Walked the steep end of the paved trail up to the monastery and back. Good views of the port most of the way up, quiet and peaceful at the monastery. Take lots of water!

There’s a small, beautiful chapel inside the monastery which was open when we stopped by.

There’s also a honesty shop just inside the front door that sells water, beer and an assortment of trinkets.

on Hydra Walk

It’s a pretty walk with several scenic spots to swim. Beaches are somewhat busy, the rockier spots are much quieter.

The views and the solitude were great! Most of the hike had full sun exposure and the trail had a few scrambles and long stretches of rough terrain. Be sure to bring plenty of water on a hot day, 2 liters per person or more. We started in Hydra and went straight up to the monastery and summit. The hike to the monastery was mostly paved and had good tree cover. After the monastery the trail got hot, rough and the number of people thinned. There were plenty of goats to keep us company though. The view from the summit was incredible and totally worth it. If I were doing it again, I would turn back here. The remainder of the hike had views but was hot and slow going over the rough trail. We didn't bring enough water for the heat so when we got down from the mountain to the first harbor, we called a sea taxi to bring us a few beaches over to get food and water and skipped the last part of the hike along the shore which was the flatest part of the hike.
