The first half of this walk is on paved roads past olive groves to the village of Anidri. There was little traffic on these roads in February. There's a cafe in the village, in an old schoolhouse, but it was closed when we passed it. From the village, the route descends steeply, first on paved lanes, then on a trail, into the gorge. We weren't sure whether we'd encounter flowing water in the gorge in February, but it was dry except for a bit of leakage from irrigation pipes near the village. The descent of the gorge is straightforward, but is quite rough in places. A trekking pole is strongly advised, along with a good sun hat.
