near Koutsourás, Kriti (Greece)
Very beautiful gorge with a few cascades. In the middle some olive yards, a chapel and a tap (probably with non potable water). Some waymarking with yellow arrows (uphill) and red dots which are sometimes confusing as there are old and new routes. About 3 hours uphill and 2,5 hours downhill. At the end of the uploaded track, you reach a fence. If you pass it, you can continue to the Afendis Christos church and the surfaced road to Orino by following a track on the western bank. A new ladder was installed on May 27th 2011 while we were waiting to be the first users.

Bus stop just at the starting point of this trail.
