Walks

Sunday 23 February 2020 - Milies - Propan (Kalamaki)

This is a joint walk with Orivatikos, Volos.  The full walk is estimated to be about 3 hours and is a route which was opened by the Friends of the Kalderimi last year.

The walk will begin at 10.00 from the square in Milies.  As this is not a circular walk, you will need to drop passengers in Milies at around 09.00 - 09.15 and take your car to Propan (Kalamaki).  You should make your own arrangements to bring drivers back in as few cars as possible to Milies to start the walk, and to collect those cars from Milies after the walk.

We will leave the Milies square at 10.00, initially on the kalderimi towards Tsagarada.

The last part of the walk from Choreftra asphalt road junction to Propan (Kalamaki) takes about one hour and is very nice, and a gentle walk for those who want to walk a smaller distance.  If you plan to join the walk at the Choreftra junction, you must make your own arrangements to collect your car at the end of the walk.

After the walk we will eat at the taverna of Alekos Mekkas in the square at Propan (Kalamaki).

Please confirm by email before 19:00 on Friday if you will be eating.
