    I have followed this trail  verified  View more

    Το περπατήσαμε μέχρι το Μεθύδριο, το έχουμε όμως κάνει και ολόκληρο. Απο τα ωραιότερα της Πελοποννήσου και τώρα την άνοιξη με το πολύ νερό αλλά και το φθινόπωρο με τα αντίστοιχα χρώματα. Άψογη σήμανση, άψογη εφαρμογή του Wikiloc .

    Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ για το σχόλιο. Το μέρος είναι φανταστικο, βγαλμένο από παραμύθι που αξίζει κάποιος να το επισκευτεί πολλές φορές σε διαφορετικές εποχές του χρόνου... Ελπίζω να το ξανακάνω κάποια στιγμή..
