This route links the X2 (Kyparissi-Kremasti) and the X3 (Harakas Kyparissi), crossing the small plateau of Babala, at one time the site of a settlement that was the focus of Kyparissi’s livestock and farming industries, comprising a large scattering of huts and the little church of Aghios Ioannis. An uphill path begins a short distance above the old mill and the chapel of the Panayia, near the settlement of Vrysi, following the X3 for some 3,800 m. An alternative starting point is 1,000 m higher up the road on a sharp bend. The route continues on to Babala on a relatively wide path, narrowing as it passes terraced fields up to an altitude of 950m. It then turns downhill past a goatherd’s hut. After a total distance of about 5,060 m it reaches route X2. On the left the path leads to Kremasti, on the right to Kyparissi.
