A nice easy circular trail with good views. Go early before the crowds come. No elevation to speak about makes it easy to walk.

Very enjoyable 7km walk. It’s largely flat, circling Mt Olympus following a rocky path - trainers or better recommended. Lovely views down some steep slopes. We maintained a fair pace and did it in 1 hour 45. In terms of the route - start by...More

The walk itself is fantastic with some incredible views. You basically follow the same contour line around Mount Olympus in a loop back to the car park. The track itself is lovely and beautiful prepared, but there is a chronic lack of signs, arrows, or...More
