Within the intricate topography of Zagori area, the locals developed a complex network of paths, the most important of which evolved into roads for mules, subsequently laid with stones, the 'kalnterimia".

These "kalnterimia", combined with the dirt paths, the vast alpine zone and the extensive forest roads network, give birth to an endless wealth of routes, many of which stand out for the aesthetic, environmental or cultural value or their integration into wider assemblies of circular hiking routes or long crossings.

Most of these routes have been identified many years ago and the ones close to settlements have been signposted on the occasion of various programmes for touristic development.
