O2 Elafos-Keramidi

O2 Elafos-Keramidi

The Elafos-Keramidi section of the O2 National Trail is the northernmost of the sections of O2 that enters the area of North Pelion. The route is quite interesting, as it runs through old rural areas and in some places has a nice view of Lake Karla.

The hike starts from the center of Elafos and follows the alleys of the settlement. After the village stadium, we take an earth path to enter the oak forest. The path eventually crosses a dirt road and finally follows it.
After a plateau, we leave the dirt road and take the path to enter the forest, until we reach the old rural area of ​​Paliabela, where there are some terracing structures. The path continues on wooded slopes and crosses several ravines.
With an alternation of sections on path and on dirt roads, we eventually get to a dirt road that crosses a large zone forested with oaks.
We continue always on a dirt road, until the waymarking lead us to an old alley, which ends and becomes a cobbled path. The cobbled path leads us to the village of Keramidi.
