52.45. Saitures to Malaki Walk and Cycle in Crete

45. Saitures to Malaki Walk and Cycle in Crete

Four kilometres of track, mostly on the edge of limestone gorges.

Good for both walkers and cyclists.

From the main church in Saitures head east and then turn north round a group of buildings. The track runs north with a steep drop on the east. This track is level for the first half kilometre and then drops round a hairpin bend cut in the white sandstone rock.

35 min. The track drops steeply into a forested valley before climbing out the other side. Take a sharp turn right on the valley's eastern edge.

1 hr 10 min. Follow this track south-east through woodland to Malaki.
