e-Mountain Biking// West Coast Trail To Ghost Town

We stay on the west coast and head to the north from Naxos town following the main road. Soon enough we take the rural road  until we reach Ipsilotera’s tower. We continue on the coastal trail  until we reach the chapel of Prophitis (prophet) Elias. At that point we make a short stop to enjoy the picturesque view and to hydrate.

From there we cross the main road and ride by Faneromeni’s dam. We continue on this uphill dirt trail. Imposing rocky mountains all around us, livestock farms, beehives and small creeks. At the end of the trail we reach Skeponi, a deserted village since the 70’s, that is hidden among the lush vegetation. Time to explore and let ourselves be one with the serene landscape!

We take the same way back to Naxos town and wind permitting we’ll make one last short stop for swimming!
