Mt. Parnitha : Why not hiking on snow ?
On Saturday the 26th of January at 11.00 morning SAS organize a hike through the forested paths of the east side of Mount Parnitha.
The hike will take 3 to 4 hours depending if there is snow on the trails ! The far east point we are going to reach is Xerovouni, one of the various peaks of the mountain at a height of 1119 m., from where the view is at least superb ! It’s level of difficulty is medium and height difference to be covered is only 150 m.
After the end of the hike we would have the opportunity to take lunch or meal at “ Flabouri ”Mountain Hut.
Meeting point is in the park area of “ Flabouri Refuge ”, at the end of a dirt road, 1700 m. off the main asphalt road coming from “ Agia Triada ”. There is a sign there at the turn right just 3,9 km after the chapel.
There will be also another meeting point at ‘‘Thrakomakedones ’’square at 10:00 a.m. at the ‘‘Periptero to Steki’’ in order to go up to the mountain as a convoy and probably to serve some members who will come by bus, but they have specially to declare that.
Keep in mind that if there is no snow, the hike automatically will be converted in a pleasant easy walk into the forest … !
For those who are interested in participating, please declare up to 24th 20:00 p.m. Leader will be Georgos Foteinos, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Emergency phone 6945 386255.
