Workaway.net hasn’t disappointed and teams for the spring are being assembled. Volunteers from Northern Ireland, the USA, Canada, Spain, Germany and the UK have been booked in and I can’t wait to get started again around 12 March. I’m also excited about the prospect of new pictorial signs for the Retsina Trail and the Monk’s Trail. An app is also in the pipeline that will enable hikers to buy single hikes for use with their smart phone.
Apart from tidying up existing trails, we hope to reopen an old section of trail from Glossa village up to TACAN (it then continues down to Taxiarkis), the trail to the tower at Loutsa and the continuation of the trail to Kalogeros.
If you notice any particularly overgrown trails, please let us know and we’ll do our best to get them cleared.
I am planning to visit Skopelos from 2nd June – 16th June this year. This will be my third visit to the island – so you can see that I enjoy it very much – i’d love to meet you and join some of your walks if that would be possible. Could you email me with any information you might have of walks at that time.
These days, I don’t have an actual programme. However, I group hikers together as and when I get contacted. I’ve your dates in my diary and will contact you nearer the time. We meet outside Koxilis bakery on the sea front. The post popular trail is Panormos bay as we give it a lot of clearing attention plus it’s a great place to walk to. We return by bus. I look forward to meeting you.
