I’m not sure where they begin measuring the trail, but my Garmin clocked almost 20km round trip from the trailhead near the quarry in Digaleto, not the posted ~13km. 85% of the trail is through the forest on rough switchbacks, so there isn’t much view until the top, which can get a little boring. But the views from the top are worth it. I ran most of this trail, minus a few really rough rocky places, and dodging blown down trees on the middle of the trail. Overall it is pretty well marked for a Greek hiking trail, and was a good trail running challenge. Just be prepared for a longer trek than the posted signs, I wasn’t quite prepared as I thought I’d only be doing a 13km out and back.
