Clif path this year



http://www.arillas.com/forum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=308

The state of the cliff path to San Stefanos seems to be on it's last days.
It is still walkable but one must be careful while going through this few meters.

We have been advising the local council to do something about it but there is not much that can be done as nobody knows who the actual owner of the property next to the path is.
One of our councilors has promised to find out through the property registry services , so that we can proceed to any further actions.

Thanks for the info Dimitris! I think I'll save the Mythos for AFTER the walk!

That will test few peoples nerves, I nearly got virtigo reality looking at the photo. Thanks for posting Dimitris. How about a video of walking passed it and showing the height of the drop.

Is it possible to walk through the field on the other side fence?

I found it dodgy last year, to be honest, so afraid I'm going to chicken out this year...

You can cut through on a track that may join the donkey track slightly further up than where the damage is if you go up the back road From Marinaki Apartments heading towards Thetis and Mathraki Aparts there is a turn off on the left which we used and it brings you out about half way up the Donkey track which is visible in Google Earth
Although i don't know if we were trespassing we passed a couple of folk and no one mentioned anything apart from a cheerful Kalimera :-)

It will be a shame if it does go completely, as it was a little trip into nature. Much nicer than walking at the side of a road. Guess though, all good things come to an end. Hope its still there when we visit next in 2012, but it looks as if it won't.

You can  avoid the cliff path by turning at Eftihias Taverna and walk around the public road to the Paradisso and Panorma villas where a nice track through the local field will take you to the top of the well known road to San Stefanos .

Glad Tony and Dimitris have posted about the alternative route up to the donkey track. It is a shame to miss out on the fabulous views even if we have to join it half way up.

I don't think we are trespassing by using this way past the villas everyone seems to be very relaxed about people wandering about exploring the highways and byways!

I just hope I see some Golden Orioles in the treetops they are a beautiful sight to see really breathtaking.

Just remember to spray with insect repellant before striding off through the long grass.

Cheers Nan x
