Dromos tis Mygas at Anogia

Dromos tis Mygas is a short hiking trail a few kilometres after Anogia. It is a 2.5-kilometre circular route which climbs parallel to the Myga Gorge, allowing you to enjoy a short 1-hour walk on the slopes of Psiloritis.

The strange name “Dromos tis Mygias” (Trail of the Fly, in Cretan dialect) is derived from the legend that many flies gathered around the corpse of a wild beast killed by an Anogian many years ago near a local spring.

The photos show you the landscape in the depths of winter, but without the snow common in the Anogia area. If you come in the spring, the flowering shrubs and wildflowers will make the trail prettier and the landscape gentler.
