This trek, from the tourist town of Kala Nera, takes you up the hillslope on paths and kalderimi (old cobble paths) to the small village of Milies. There, you'll find a small rail station for the historic train. The trail is now a tourist attraction and you'll follow the railway most of the way back to the coast.
From Kala Nera, head out on a small path off of EO-34. The trail alternates between and earth path and an old cobbled path (kalderimi). Near the top, you'll cross a stream via a concrete bridge and wind up the hillslope to reach Milies. The town is rather quaint and worth a tour. When finished exploring, head back the way you came to reach the train station.
From here you'll follow the railway a couple of miles as you head back down toward the coast. This section starts with a high metal bridge that you must cross. Just on the other side of the bridge, is a path that leads to an old (now closed) church. As you navigate down, you'll wind through olive groves, under an old archway and a spring water-fed drinking fountain.
Near the end of the run, you'll diverge from the tracks and follow a series of steep paths and Kalderimi through olive groves and dispersed houses. The trail ends in a nice olive grove, just west of the start of the run.
