Walking beech forests on Mt Pelion, above village of Agios Georgios. Description on www.pilionwalks.com walk number 4.
  • Φωτογραφίες Eastern Refuge
The refuge is found by following an earth track from the main road between Ag Georgios and Pinakates. We used a 4x4 jeep to reach the refuse but walking from the main road would be about 45 minutes each way I guess.
  • Φωτογραφίες Beech tree - point 6
At this point, our track is the one to the right and has a sign by EOS Volos. The point numbers refer to the description of the walk we were following from the site www.pilionwalks.com (walk 4)
  • Φωτογραφίες Point 6 - road becomes path
Much logging activity is taking place, with many wood piles along forest tracks. Be careful to follow the route of the walk and not deviate on what looks like a clear path that is being used by the logging activity.
  • Φωτογραφίες Straight ahead, ignore the arrow
A few meters from the previous waypoint we were confused by this arrow and followed it. This is a loggers path. So continue straight ahead hear and ignore this arrow.
  • Φωτογραφίες Photo
We are back on the correct track. Here we ascend a rocky path that has plenty of red paint marks to help identify the route.
  • Φωτογραφίες Point 7 go left at the sign.
Some signs are no longer visible to read, but follow the path left at this point.
  • Φωτογραφίες Point 8 turn left
Some excellent signs, here provided by our friends at EOS Volos (Mountain Club of Volos)
  • Φωτογραφίες Logging activity may conceal way marks
In the high beech woods logging continues (although we saw no work activity). In winter the whole forest floor is covered in leaves and the path is not obvious. So the many red paint waymarks on trees are vital. In summer you may ask why so many but the answer is for the winter! When logging activity is blocking the path we were able to see our way through without difficulty.

Time for a short break.....
  • Φωτογραφίες Forestry obscuring path.... Follow red dots if not cut down!
  • Φωτογραφίες Photo
Once we had passed the logging area we were back in the beautiful undisturbed forest ...
  • Φωτογραφίες Point 11 turn right. Great signs by EOS Volos
  • Φωτογραφίες Schidzouravli peak. Point 13 Wow!
In this photo we are looking south, down the Pelion peninsular and in the distance the north coast of Evia.
  • Φωτογραφίες Photo
Looking east out over the Aegean.
  • Φωτογραφίες Photo
We have visited here a few times in winter. But today the views were stunning!
  • Φωτογραφίες Rope assisted descent. Not difficult. Point 14
This is really not difficult but just be careful of any slippery rocks.
  • Φωτογραφίες Photo
Heading downhill
  • Φωτογραφίες Point 16 leave main track towards east shelter.
This narrow path leaving the forest road is very well marked. It is signposted 'eastern shelter' which is our finish point.

Looking south, Evia and Skiathos.
  • Φωτογραφίες Photo
We now traverse open bracken fields and above us the beech forest and ridge we were following earlier.
  • Φωτογραφίες Photo
And finally, we head back to our start point along forest roads, a wonderful walk in autumn.
