Thanks both of you. Will be over in Corfu on the 8th June. We will be staying in our usual haunt of Nissaki, we thought we would like to visit this old village. We haven't done this walk for 10 years, but have always said I would go back some day, maybe now is the time. Yamas Cindy

It might even be further up to Vistonas and then over the top and on to Trumpetas in one direction or down to Doukades in the other. The trail probably split at Troumpetas going south to Skripero, east across to Pantokrator and all over the north of the island. These old donkey trails are amazing to follow as they link the whole island together. The lane up to our house was originally an old donkey track up to Ag. Prokopis, which we made into a "driveable" track thirty years ago. The bottom bit of it is now tarmac, so I am not sure how much we helped the environment, although nearly all the olive and cypress trees which were here originally are still here as we take great care of our trees and heritage.

Most people talking about the 'donkey trail' mean the footpath up to Lakones. You can get to Lakones by road if you head back out of Paleo and take the winding road on the inland side. Makrades and Krini are further along the same road towards the Angelokastro.
I've heard it mentioned that there are more direct footpaths from Paleo towards Krini and the Angelokastro. Is that true; are they really hard to follow? As the more direct terrain looks quite difficult to cross.
