Level of the route is between moderate and difficult. It has no technical parts, everything is done either on asphalt roads or on very wide and in good condition dirt roads, so I finally decided to mark it moderate. Great views to the bay from first part of the trail, and to Evinos river and hills of nafpaktia from the second part!
