Fantastic trail with great views and lots of different terrain. Loved it, but, for us, not well trained hikers, moderate = on the limit...

The first part of this trail is part of the Roman road hike. That trail is well used, mostly flat, and easy to navigate. When we went there was some traffic but not crowded by any means. Some scattered Roman ruins, sound of rushing water, generally very pleasant. Once across the high bridge the trail changes. It was mostly overgrown. Few people use it. Lots of thorns, downed trees, etc. We aren’t afraid of some unkempt trails so we did the first half of the other side of the river, but didn’t do the last mountain. It stopped being pleasant after getting scraped constantly with bushes and thorny plants for an hour so we joined back up with the original trail and competed that way. It could be a great trail with more use or some aggressive path clearing.
