It was awesome and very hard. I didn’t completed the trail due to time. Highly recommend: start early morning, wear hiking shoes and dress in layers, bring water and maybe walking sticks. It is steep most of the time. I wish I had more time to make it to the top, but def doable in one day.

I found the trail was easy to do if you are in very good shape. Not technical. Started from the parking lot at 6:00 up to the top and back the same day at 16:30.

Did this mid July and it was fantastic! The theme of this hike is vertical and then some more vertical. Many people do this in two days while sleeping at the refuge station. Station has food, water, and supplies. After the station it is slow going because of the vert. Most of it is runnable downhill. Give praise to Zeus at the top!

@NikolasVal and @SteliosPantazis Did you do this in the winter? I am going to be there in the middle of Feb. Also, does it really take 2 days? It is only 11 miles and I have done much higher mountains at 14 miles in 1 day. What do you think is it possible to do in 1 day? And Is it wise?

Great landscape and to reach the top, Mytigas. If you do go, get a safety helmet. Stones may fall at the very top.
