I did the whole trail from 14-08-2020 till 21-08-2020. It’s a great hike! A large part leads you through fir forests. The villages are small and beautiful. You need definitly a walking stick. Mind that there is only an ATM in Stemnitsa, Damitsana, Vytina and Lagkadia. At many accomodations you can only pay with cash. In summer the bus leaves from Lagkadia to Tripoli at 15.00 h. The Menalon trail map helps you to understand the courses of the trail.
