This trail is Topolia to Katsomatados. This walk follows the Topiliano Gorge. It is 5k each direction so around 10k. The Greek winter of 2018-19 saw this gorge take heavy rock fall. This is a bouldering with some rock climbing. You will need hiking boots or supportive trainers. This trail is not leisurely. I am in my 30s and very physically fit. This took me 2h up and then the return journey from Katsomatados to Topolia is 3h down. Its a great trail but you need to expect it to be tricky and technically challenging at some points.
