It is one of the two main scenic roads of Mt Pelion (best to ride both as a loop all around the mountain). The road run through dense forest, apple tree fields and small villages, offering a pleasant and picturesque ride. The road in general, is very narrow, sometimes a problem especially when encountering tour buses or other large vehicles. Zigzagging up the mountainside through a series of stunning ridges, the main road climbs up to Hania (26 km. away from Volos City, alt. 1225m.), which has become a winter sports centre thanks to the development of Agriolefkes, a modern ski resort. After the pass of Hania, the road starts to descend, weaving in and out through forests of oak and chestnut trees, offering amazing views of the Aegean Sea. The road continues to the northern end of Pelion Mountain and the riding gets exciting with hairpin turns and twists all the way down to the east coast, either to Zagora or to Tsagarada, as the road after Hania is forked. Our choice of preference is to go towards Tsagarada. The road is still narrow but the asphalt is in a very good condition as it is paved recently.
