Points of interest:  Black pine forest, rare endemic species of flora and interesting geological formations are among the many points of interest on this trail which also offers an opportunity to admire two 500-year – old black pines and the “walls of the old town”. The latter are ruins of temporary fortifications built during the last year of Venetian rule (1571) by a group of Venetian generals who chose this spot for a last stand against the invading Ottomans. The route is circular, going round Olympos mountain peak (Chionistra) at an altitude of 1.850 metres and offering spectacular views in all directions. It can link up with the Atalanti trail.
