Hiked this trail on October 19th Friday. I was expecting a lot of hikers but really only saw maybe 50 people from beginning to end . Took public bus from Chania, hiked, ferry to.bus pickup and public bus back to Chania. Hike is not as difficult as I thought it was going to be. I wore tennis shoes and wished over and over I had my regular hiking boots only because the continues rock terrain wears on your feet and my hiking boots would have given me more protection. Other than that it is a cool hike, fun to see the goats roaming around. Fresh water and decent outhouses throughout the hike.
