Route A: Bafi Shelter – Mola – Bafi Shelter
Easy route, ideal for families. The hike begins from Bafi Shelter and most of it is in the dense fir forest. We pass by the springs of Koromilia and Mesiano Nero until we reach the plateau of Mola. After we rest and possibly encounter some red deer, we return through the same path but with a different viewpoint at Bafi Shelter.
Route B: Bafi Shelter – Skipiza – Bafi Shelter
A loop route starting and ending to Bafi Shelter. The path is in a dense fir forest along with cedars and black pine trees. It is one of the most beautiful routes of the mountain during which we will also visit the fire guardhouse and reach the famous Skipiza spring.
Route C: Bafi Shelter – Koromilia – Mola – Bafi Shelter
The hike begins from Bafi Shelter and most of it is in the dense fir forest. We pass by the spring of Mesiano Nero until we reach the plateau of Mola. After we rest and possibly encounter some red deer we enter a densely vegetated path towards the spring of Koromilia in the heart of Mt.Parnitha national park and at an altitude above 1000 meters.

OK, was bit silly to anticipate snow but my son aged 7 saw the pictures and was bit disappointed...other than that, a great day
Quite a nice easy hiking tour, scenery is impressive (didn't expect to see so much green so close to an urban environment like Athens), guide walked with us and was very positive and knowledgeable of the area, safe and easy for the kids (13 and 14), overall not the grand canyon but a very ice day with lots of views and fun.
