Two island associations, the Anavasi Greek Cycling and Hiking Association of Aegina and the Association of Active Citizens of Aegina, 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. Nine of the ten paths have been numbered. They have a total length of about 45 kilometers and range from easy to moderate. Path Four (4) is one of the most beautiful routes on the island. It starts at the castle-like convent of the Virgin Mary the Golden Lioness (Panagia Chrysoleontissa), climbs smoothly toward the plateau of Agios Leontios and the old cisterns (souvales), and then heads downhill to the southeast to reach Pachia Rachi. The total route is 6 kilometers (2.5 hours), and relatively easy.
