Two organizations, the Anavasi Greek Cycling and Hiking Association of Aegina and the Association of Active Citizens of Aegina (Syllogos Energon Politon Aiginas), have cleared and marked 10 paths so you can get to know the rich history of the island, its natural beauty, its culture, and its folk tradition. These paths were recently included in the Paths of Culture project of the Elliniki Etairia Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage. 9 of the 10 paths have been numbered. They have a total length of about 45 km and range from easy to moderate. Path Nine (9) starts by the kindergarten just outside the settlement of Mesagros, on the way to Aphaia. At the beginning it heads north for 200m, and then it turns east, making a wide, short Greek letter pi (like 3 sides of a rectangle), returning to the public road about 500m east of its starting point. From there, it moves south and then east into the pine forest to reach the temple of Aphaia (an easy 2.5 km walk, about 55 minutes).
