The tenth route of the E4 European long distance Path is about 18 kilometers and lasts 6 hours and 30 minutes. The time it has to be followed is from May to October(due to the large torrents) and it is an easy route. It starts from one of the most beautiful routes in Crete, the Samaria Gorge. Its northern entrance is in the southern center of the Omalos Plateau, Ksiloskalo, and there is an everyday bus connection to that place. The gorge can be passed from 06.00’ to 15.00’. The admission is only free for the children under 15 years old, disabled people and groups of students (only with written permission by the Forest Service).There are strict rules that all the visitors must obey as it is a natural beauty monument and a national park. The route starts from Ksiloskalo that is 1.200 meters above the sea level. From that point, you can see the Psari, Melintaou, Volakias, Gigilos and Pachnes hilltops and the hilltop with the Kallergis mountain hut. Go down the hillside and reach the Neroutsiko spring with a resting and relaxing area after 1.700 meters and 40 minutes and the Riza Sikia spring after 100 meters and after having the torrent in your right and,then, going through it. There is a flat area, the Agios Nikolaos church,a spring and the Forest Service’s guardhouse after 35 minutes walking and 1 kilometer from Riza Sikia. After having walked 15 minutes and 800 meters, pass by Vrisi, leave the river behind and go up observing the Melintaou and Psari hilltops, the Kalikampos Gorge and an old Turkish tower. After that, go down to Kolardachtis, turn right following the path and reach the desolated Samaria settlement. Use the small bridge in the settlement and pass by a resting area, a Forest Service’s guardhouse and a spring. Pass by the small Christos church, the heliport and go to the eastern bank using the small bridge. After 1 kilometer, you see the Perdikas to nero spring, go down to the riverbed and follow it (as the path cannot be seen clearly). Go opposite the eastern bank to Kefalovrisia (it is 45 minutes and 2,9 kilometers from the Perdika to nero spring) and, then, continue on the path. Pass by an old watermill, a flat area and the Christos church and see the impressive Portes of the gorge(after 600 meters and 1,6 kilometers from Kefalovrisia). Having left the Forest Service’s guardhouse behind, followed the western side of the gorge and passed the Spilia, Misogeitonia and Kato Geitonia (in the eastern bank of the torrent) neighborhoods, use the bridge that leads to the exit of the gorge. Going to the western side of the gorge, you can see a Turkish fortress, ruins of an old watermill, an old stone bridge, the Koimisis Theotokou church and the coastal Agia Roumeli settlement (18 kilometers after).
