Connected To: Trail 1 | Neda – Abeliona – Epicurius Apollon, Trail 3 | Abeliona – Agios Sostis – Neda
The trail starts from the village of Neda, previously called Berekla. Through a beautiful dust road, the trail starts descending passing by the old church watermill, a stone-built bridge and the churches of Panagitsa and Agios Georgios. A bit further away, on the other side of the stream, you will find the famous Neda Springs, where the water pours out from the earth. Next to the springs there is the church of Agianastasi. Be careful to not try to cross the river when there is water flowing down. Going up the hill from there, the old path reaches the village of Petra, previously called Delga. You can either cross the traditional village or bypass it and head straight downhill to the village of Abeliona. After a few meters on dust and asphalt roads next to planted walnut trees, the trail turns again into a narrower path. At the beginning of the way uphill there is the water fountain of Variko, an ideal spot to stop for a few minutes under the shade of the plane trees. The path continues then uphill, till it meets broader dust roads offering great views to the surrounding mountains of Lykaion and Tetrazi. The old footpath continues downhill till the fountain of Tritseli, where you meet the APOLLO TRAIL 1 (Neda – Abeliona – Apollo Epicurius). From there, the short way uphill finishes at the village of Abeliona, an ideal spot for lunch and rest.
