Level moderate for distance and some steeper ascents close to Glafkos. No technical difficulties. I have done it with trekking bike, but also possible with road bike as all the route is on asphaltus. Very nice views to Glafkos valley and panorama of Patras.
NOTE: water spring available in Paleo Souli.
