De kloof vanuit Kali Rixti richting Myrtia gelopen. Je loopt door een bosrijk gebied wat met warm weer zeer verkoelend is.

You are walking through a wooded area which is very cool in warm weather. We found it very special to this gap to run because you this forest on Crete not expected. The gap is easier to walk, because you then descends from Myrtia. At the beginning of the Gorge in Myrtia, you'll find two toilet blocks with w.c. and basin. We started at km 3 (Kali Rixti) and terminated at 7.6 km (Myrtia). 2 1/2 is in hours up to run with break. You can also close the gap before starting from the sea. We have been struggling to find the name of this gap, because travel agents give named something else (Skalatino gorge) and offer it as excursion with a guide. It is a easy to run gap for someone with reasonable walking condition. There is no need to be shuffling over boulders and there are a metre wide bridges over the water. The route is well signposted with markers. Care so much for transport at the end of the Gorge. In that case of Myrtia to Kali Rixti better to walk, because then you're not far from Skalani wondering what a larger town is.
A wonderful place to visit!! An amazing nature and a lovely river running through the gorge. Half an hour from heraklion. Worth visiting.
Well preserved trail.
