You descend via old cobbled paths from Milies towards the coast whilst enjoying great views. Last section before reaching the coastal village of Koropi is via dirt roads through olive groves. From Koropi you walk to the nearby touristic village Kala Nera, where you might have lunch in the shadow of the big plane tree on the village square. Then you ascend via cobbled paths via a hamlet until the narrow gauge railway tracks, that you follow until Milies. The tracks are 200-300m above sea level. It is great to follow the tracks that ascend gradually. Wherever mule tracks cross the tracks, stone road bridges have been built: interesting civil engineering features from the past. You will also walk past the cave where, according mythology, the centaur Cheiron taught Asklepios about medical plants and herbs. During the summer months the steam train operates once per day only on Saturday and Sunday.
