Itinerary description

After resting and provisioning, leave Vytina and continue on the route leading to Nymphasia.
After walking 850 meters on asphalt you’ll reach Old Vytina and the trailhead of the footpath that will leads to Mavra Litharia, a massive limestone boulder in the riverbed of Milaon River, that the stream cut in half creating a short yet impressive gorge.
From here start descending to the Tzavarenas’ bridge, a solid stone bridge that secured the connection between Vytina with the western gortynian villages.
The path gains altitude in a unique rocky landscape made of flysch covered with shrubs, reaching an altitude of 880 meters and wending horizontally towards Nymphasia, a small yet lively satellite of Vytina.

    Walk Wonders Archanes i have done this trail during December. In general in the whole "Menalon Trail'' there are parts of the trails where you have to cross a river or you have to walk next to a river. In those cases there is a danger after a lot of rain... So in general it is possible to walk it during March but you will need information for the curent condition of the trail! Few days before you travel to menalon send a mail here. (I did the same.. :) )
