Waterfalls Drymonas – Mountain peak of Xiron Oros

A relatively easy trail with difficulty level 1 and approximately 3:30 hours duration.
Just at the edge of Rovies, on the main road to Edipsos, turn right at the intersection towards the Monastery of Saint David. After 12 km we will have already passed the Monastery and the villages Paliohori villages, Damia, Kalamoudi, Drymonas, we reach the waterfalls of Drymonas. On the trail entrance to the waterfalls there is a wooden plaque. The trail is steep and will take about 10 minutes to reach the large waterfall. After the waterfall the trail continues and after 5 minutes we pass a canteen and we come out on the main asphalt road. At this point there is a wooden house (forestry cabin at 660m altitude). The path to the top of the Xiron Oros Mountain begins from the asphalt road, opposite the forestry cabin. Initially the path is easy and with little incline. After walking approximately 15 minutes, the path intersects with the forest road (Point 1) in which we go left. After 300 meters the path continues on the right side of the road (Point 2)and in about 200 we reach a plateau. We don’t take the dirt road that is before us, but instead we turn to the right and follow the existing marks on the trees. The path now becomes more steep at some points. The pine forest is dense and occasionally we find large trees, oaks and maple trees. The trail continues through the woods until it meets a forest road (created for logging), which we follow for some time until the end (all the way there are red-white metal marks onto trees). From the point where the road for the lumberjacks ends until the mountain top, is about 15 minute route. The trail exits the forest and continues for 300 meters approximately over the ridge on bare limestone and ends at the top. The top is in altitude 990m and from up there we have a panoramic view of Central Evoia and islands Skiathos and Skopelos. If the atmosphere is clear you can even see up to Mount Athos.
