The footpath starts at Agios Ioannis Eleimonas, at the eastern edge of the Ano Meria settlement. From the road, the route follows a paved footpath leading to the Folk Art Museum and from there to the Agios Ioannis Theologos countryside chapel. The footpath descends and crosses the abandoned village of Marmaro, where typical Ano Meria architecture has been preserved intact. As it approaches the coast, the route passes above the picturesque bay of Ai Nikolas – always enchanting – and then descends towards the small beach at Galyfos. Moving along the coast, the footpath finally leads to the small church of Agia Marina, outside Aggali.

The route can also be followed backwards: Aggali – Agios Nikolaos – Marmaro – Agios Ioannis Eleimonas – Ano Meria.
