This isolated route was marked out by the local mountaineering club EOSNAL. It begins on the path next to the chapel of Aghia Paraskevi in Harakas, below the ruined fortress of Palaiohora.  The beginning of the path is cobblestone, supported by well-constructed, high walls. It winds downhill, at first on a gentle slope then more steeply as it descends through a stream bed to the beach of Piliza, first passing through terraced fields. It is a difficult route (dropping 600 m from start to finish) but the lovely beach of Piliza is otherwise only accessible by sea.
