The fifth route of the E4 European Long Distance Path in Crete is 20 kilometers long and lasts 8 to 9 hours. You should follow it from April to September and the route is the most tiring and difficult routes of Crete. Start from the coastal road of Sougia and the torrent till the stone wall in the east. Then, go along the fence of the ancient Siia in the north, go up the hillside to the north-west, reach a flat area and follow the path there. After having passed an old threshing floor and the fence in your left, the path goes up the hillside and reaches a flat area with view to the Sougia Bay. After that, go down for a few meters and reach and go through the torrent after the flat area. Pass by the old threshing floor and follow the path that goes up and down the hillside and through small torrents. Heading to the north-west, go through the torrent and see the small memorial of two rebels on the hilltop. Afterwards, go up the col and down to the gorge.There you can see a cavern and, after 150 meters, continue to the left and in its eastern side. Pass the hillside of the first hilltop, see the Agios Antonios Bay, leave it behind and follow the path on the hillside. If you want to go to the beach, turn right in the fork next to the small Agios Antonios church and walk on the path that meets the central path. Leave Agios Antonios behind, see a large, deep and impressive cutting on the rock, go through and follow the next torrent for 100 meters. Then, go up its eastern bank and see the ancient Pikilassos. Follow the path that goes up and leave a stone iconostasis and a spring behind. The path turns left and starts to get difficult. Go up to the Pikilasos fortress and the hilltop with the small Profitis Ilias church and enjoy the view to Sougia, Domata, Lissos, Lefka Ori and Gavdos. From that point, start going down a difficult and steep hillside for 25 minutes and reach a gorge. Then, head to the south, pass two large pine trees and walk for 15 minutes to the end of the gorge. According to the signs the exit of the gorge is between a large rock and a hillside that you should not follow because of the landslides but go along the sea and reach a bay with houses and a beach. After the beach, go through the torrent and up the small hill for 30 minutes being careful. For 50 meters the path becomes so difficult and dangerous that you should use your hands for steadiness and safety. After that difficult part and having the sea in your right, go up the hillside, ignore a fork and reach a gorge. After the gorge, go up for a few meters and arrive at a place where you can see the Tzatzimou area. The path continues to a steep hill beneath that area, goes up and, then, down to a small stream where you can enjoy the view to Domata, the bay and the beach. After the stream, continue to the Klados gorge and arrive at Domata (the route from Pikilassos to Domata lasts about 3 hours). After the Domata beach, follow its eastern side to the well. Then, go up and down when you see the hilltop of Lefka Ori and the Volakias hilltop till the torrent with the pine tree. After that, go up till another pine tree and the fork where you should turn right. Go down, leave the torrent’s eastern side behind and see opposite the Agia Roumeli bay and the Agios Pavlos beach. Having gone down a hillside, head to the east, go through the fence and arrive at Agia Roumeli.
