Two associations, 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 are part of the Paths of Culture project of the Elliniki Etairia Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage. 9 of the 10 paths have been numbered. Ranging from easy to moderate, they have a total length of about 45 kilometers. Path Six (6) begins at the Skoteini (Dark) Stream (Asopos River in antiquity). This passable path ascends to Tzikides and then heads to the convent of the Virgin Mary the Golden Lioness (Panagia Chrysoleontissa), after passing the convent's impressive stone threshing floor. 300 meters before the threshing floor, a 100 meter detour to the north will take us to the church of Saint Andrew (Agios Andreas). Total length: 6 kilometers (150 minutes).
