bei Sarakína, Crete (Greece)
Coppied this walk from Gerhard49 https://www.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/user.do?id=1270519
An excellent walk from Sarkina, you climb steadily up the side of one valley with great views. You then go over the top of the ridge to see the valley to the other side with views out to the main Paleochora road. You walk along the side of that valley and then climb back to the ridge and come back down through the first valley taking in some some olive groves along the way. The bar in Sarakina is good.
There's space for parking on the right hand side of the road just before turning right into the village when approaching from the south.
You pass a very well kept church on the right before turning right into the village main street and passing an elevated bar on the left.
Just after passing the main village buildings take the narrow concrete path on the right heading down off the main road in to the valley.
Follow the concrete road around down and around a right hand bend at the end of the valley to rise again the other side to pass some farm processing buildings on the left of the road.
After the farm builds you get good views back to Sarakina and the hills
At the top of the road is a collection of farm houses, you turn left behind a very good example of a typical traditionally constructed stone building.
Stay on the main path, ignore path descending off to the left.
Good clear views back to Sarakina and the mountain.
At a sharp left hair pin bend ignore the smaller path going straight on
Again ignore the path going straight on at a sharp left turn. It is a dead end.
Staying on the main road after zigzagging upwards the road becomes relatively straight heading north.
As the gravel road starts to level off you are presented with a fork in the road, stay on the main road keeping left.
At the top of the climb the road veers shape left to go around the side of the adjacent hill to the radio mast. Straight ahead a rock barrier has been placed to prevent vehicles using that route. Going straight ahead go over the rock barrier and continue on the road.
You have now crossed over the hill and are presented with views in to the neighbouring valley. Looking north you can see the path you will be taking lower down around the hill side.
