Years ago it must have been an excellent and well-developed hiking trail. Those days are over. The road is overgrown. in places, wooden brückers are rotten and even collapsed. Landslides require detours. So there is no road entertainment in sight and the path is reclaimed by the fascinating nature. Under no circumstances is the way with light footwear and short clothing feasible. Sure-footedness is also required, as railings are broken or no longer available. It took me an hour to walk. The path is dangerous and in no way recommended. Those who want to walk the gorge should be aware of all the risks and, if necessary, be able to reverse them. There is no mobile phone either. There is an urgent need for action by those responsible

Perhaps cast in lack some more cleaning and facilities on the road.
Very striking! A bit of a jungle and you need to be happy scrambling up rickety steps and over rocks etc etc. But fun. I took my mountain bike. Not ideal because I had to stop and carry and get it up and down steps at times, but it was fun while I could ride. Not for the faint hearted if you take a bike!
A wonderful place to visit!! An amazing nature and a lovely river running through the gorge. Half an hour from heraklion. Worth visiting.
