Shortest connection between Leptokaria village (300) and Pigadi (1400). Pigadi is a place with shelter and crossroads of some routes. You can find marked trail of Olympus Mythical Trail there (red dots) and reach Litochoro with it (14 km). You can also try to reach Arvaniti Peak to the west from Pigadi (but the path is almost invisible) or use clear fire road down to Litochoro (22 km) or back to Leptokaria (15 km).
The route begins just behind the Agia Triada church in Leptokarya. There are no major technical difficulties, it rises slowly up in the forest, the only problem is finding it. It is marked on some maps, but in practice it is very poorly visible or does not exist at all. However, sometimes old red marks can be seen on some stones. Particular difficulties can be found in clearings, because in these places the path is lost completely. In general, however, the route leads along the edge of the Grisa River Gorge, so you should stick to this edge.
