It will take us less than an hour’s drive to leave Athens’ noisy city-center behind and enter to the quietness of the mountain. Our loop- hike starts from the refuge of Bafi and is ideal for hikers of all levels. First stop, is the spring of Skipiza and the lookout tower of Edasa where we going to enjoy the view towards the island of Evia as well as the Aegean Sea beyond.
From there, we will follow a clear path that traverses through the forest all the way to the Mola plateau where we will come across the small chapel of Agios Petros and a freshwater spring next to it. Here, it is also quite possible to come across a red deer as it forages for food. Our way back follows a trail that gently ascents into a thick, fir forest towards the refuge of Mpafi, were we going to have time for our much-deserved lunch before heading back to Athens.
