We took the Rethymno hop on/hop off bus to the Gorge of Mili stop, which is right by one of the two entrances to the south of the Gorge (entrance 2 on the map). Take the steps down and then follow the path round into the gorge. You’ll pass a cafe near the top (you’ll see the pulley zip wire which is used to get supplies across from the road!). It’s not a long walk - took us about an hour to get to the top, very manageable to come straight back again once reached to hop back on the bus. It is predominantly downhill on the way out, rocky in places, but fine with trainers/walking boots. You’ll pass a couple of waterfalls and streams and can hear the peaceful trickle of water all the way around. A very pleasant morning’s trip.

We went first to the town of chromastiri(?) and from there took the 'old path' and walked down towards the gorge and got in already at the first entry (we were told most to the second). It was very pretty and also a good change of landscapes; sometimes rocky, sometimes greener and then of course youll encounter small ruins and old watermills or a tiny waterfall on the way which add to the experience! There were only like 6 other people walking it simultaneously, although i think that was sheer luck, i wouldnt count on being that alone when doing it. Good lenght (ca. 2 hours) and also there are some benches for stops along the way. Take water, wear good shoes (we saw some girls in sandals and then never saw them again so they probably turned around which is the only sensible thing to do if that unprepared) and be aware that it goes downhill a lot (if you have knee problems or so). But it was a very beautyful and cool experience! We went by cab though, public transport is i think rather upsetting around rethymno

Best done either morning or later when it's cooler. Amazing walk down through the lovely gorge with ruined buildings from an era of a simpler way of life. If you head down first make sure you stop for a drink on the way back at the cafe on the trail at the top.

The Mili Gorge is a stop on the Red Bus Tour which is an all-day "Hop on, hop off" service which enables visitors to access the countryside around Rethymnon. After getting off at the rather remote stop, you can walk down to an attractive taverna, then head off downwards along the dappled path through the gorge. The walk is not too strenuous, and the atmosphere of the gorge is peaceful and refreshing. It's important to time your return to coincide with the arrival of a bus, bus even if you miss it this would simply be a good excuse to enjoy another drink at the taverna.

An absolutely beautiful Gorge to explore close to Rethymnon. There are 2 entrances near the top that take you on a gentle hike down through the Gorge. There is lots to explore on the way down. There are several churches built into the hill side and a cafe to stop for refreshments. There is also 2 villages that have been abandoned since the 1970s and nature is taking back over which are really interesting to have a look around. It is believed that the houses are much older, possibly from 1600s some think and the ruins really are impressive. The walk also takes you down past several lagoons and waterfalls which are very pretty and there are benches along the way to stop and rest. One thing to bare in mind is that if you, like us, had a car there are very few places to park. Most people tend to just park at the side of the road and it can get quite busy as the day goes on.
