Trail description

The route starts from the village of Petra (formerly called Delga) and follows the old road from where the Petrai went to Andritsaina. The road is quite wide and slightly uphill. Today it looks like an old path, but in reality, it is an attempt to open an old rural road, which was created only by manual labor. At Kyriakis, Aloni crosses Route 8 (Ampeliona-Marina-Sklirou). It continues from a modern rural dirt road to Stavrouli, where it meets Routes 1 (Ampeliona-Sklerou-Temple of Apollo Apollo) and 3 (Ampeliona-Andritsaina).
