Long Pelion Trail
This is the tenth and penultimate part of Long Pelion Trail. It connects the village of Platanias with the foothills of Mt Tisseo, where the very last part begins. The section cross a sparsely populated area which provides very few facilities even during the busy summer months. Therefore, this hiking route requires the right preparation regarding food and water supplies.
In the past, the connection between Platanias and the remote area of Trikeri used to be accomplished mostly via the sea routes. Long Pelion Trail benefit of the recently built rural roads to ensure this connection.
