Very well marked trail one of the best what I have seen here. Elevation and length require good condition, a few places are narrow other ways not difficult. Not recommend to family walks and kids. The trail starts with high elevation and end as well with high elevation. Views are magnificent everywhere, especially at the fire lookout station

This is a superb 13-km long circular trail near Madari mountain peak (in the area of Pitsilia, on the Troodos mountain range). As this is circular, there are a number of relatively convenient starting points.
The trail is of medium difficulty, without very steep ascents and descents. One may enjoy great views towards the south, including Morphou bay, and to the north, including the village of Kyperounta and Troodos peak (to the west there is view towards the village of Spilia). There is great variety in vegetation; travelers walk past golden oak, wild rose and mastic bushes, junipers, pine, strawberry trees, rock rose and sage, and even cedar, plane trees and bracken.
One may also see the interesting rock formations in the area. Travelers may also stop at the beautiful Xyliatos manmade lake as well as Panagia tou Araka church, one of the ten Unesco World heritage painted churches of Troodos.

he trail offers exceptional views of the Troodos Mountains, Morfou Bay and the valley of Mesaoria.

Mesaoria is the highest valley of Cyprus, between the mountains Troodos and Pentadaktylos. Its name in case you did not know, means "area between mountains". In this valley King Onisilos of Famagusta gave his last battle and defeated the Persian army during the Ionian Revolt.

Mesaoria has a width of about 65 km and a length of about 35 kilometers and the two largest rivers of Cyprus Pediaios and Gialias run through it. Today the valley is located in the occupied territories of Cyprus republic. However, until the Turkish invasion in 1974, it was considered the breadbasket of Cyprus, since it offered the majority of cultivated wheat and barley.

Geologically the valley of Mesaoria composed of calcareous sandstone, fossiliferous marl and gravel deposits. You should also know that 120,000 years before, the area used to be a sea and over the years with the silting of Troodos and Pentadaktylos created today's valley.

As we move on, the route of the trail passes you through the forest and at some point later, around the middle, the scenery changes and is enriched with beautiful junipers. The trail connects with other trails and paths specifically Madari-Doxa si o Theos, Teisia Madari, Moutti Country -Selladi Karamanlis and Selladi Karamanlis - Kannavia. Through 2 km of paved road, it is also connected with the Lagoudera - Agros trail. Access to the starting point you can get via vehicle from the road Beads - Polystypos. The last 800m of the access road is very bumpy and steep road so I recommend you proceed with great care!
