Mt. Parnitha : walking on snow … probably !
On Sunday the 14th of January SAS organize a never forget epic … hike through the snowed paths in Mount Parnitha.
The hike will take 3,5 to 4,5 hours depending on how much deep … the snow is on the trails ! The target is to reach ‘‘ St. Peter ’’chapel in Mola recreation area after passing near ‘‘ Orneo peak ’’, second highest on Mt. Parnitha at 1.350 m. It’s level of difficulty is hard because of the snowed terrain and despite the limited, up to 200 m, height difference.
Due to the rough condition of this hike, waterproof ( Gor-tex if possible ) hiking boots, spats ( to prevent water getting inside the boots ) and raincoat are highly recommended as well as poles and reliable equipment generally. For any case don’t forget also your head-torch …!
After the end of the hike we would have the opportunity to take lunch or meal at “ Bafi ”Mountain Hut.
Meeting point is in the park area of “ Bafi Refuge ”, 3 km after “ Agia Triada ” place on Mount Parnitha, along the main road on the right.
Take your precaution, cause this walk is recommended for hikers with some experience …, but keep also in mind that if there is no snow the hike … automatically will be converted in a pleasant walk into the forest … ! So, all the Athens Strollers and Hikers are kindly requested to watch the weather forecast even up to the last … day !!
