Mt Psiloritis Peak

Sunday, June 21st, 2020

An ascent on the highest peak of Crete, Timios Stavros, at 2,456m a.s.l. on Mt Psiloritis.

We start our hike from a place called Lakkos Mygerou, at 1700m, on the northern side of Mt Psiloritis (or Mt Ida). We follow an up going, stone-built, well-marked trail that in two hours meets the E4 European trail. Following it we reach the highest peak, Timios Stavros, which offers a panoramic view all over the island.

We return following the same route.

All participants are kindly expected to strictly keep social distancing throughout the hike. Two protection masks are necessary for the bus ride.
