6: Kato Milo

Rachi, a neighborhood and hill just above Kioni, is the starting point for this shady forest hike on the outskirts of Kioni.

First we pass by the Evangelistria church with its double bells. A little further we sidetrack to an old windmill and cistern. Returning to the wide track we pass the cemetery.

An old stony donkey track takes us first down, then up through thick woods. Some of the areas were cultivated in the past but now only goats graze and silence reigns. The ruin of another windmill is at the end of the track.

Returning, we take another path through an even lusher forest of oaks and cypresses. A short climb takes us back to the first windmill. Now we take a break at the local kafenio in Rachi, for a drink and a homemade sweet.

Duration: 2,5 or 3 hrs.
Total distance: 5 km (3 miles)
Category: Moderate walk - slight climbing and descending, rough terrain.
