C J T Walking description
00:00 We arrive at the village of Katouna and park by the derelict school (GPS: N38 46 731, E20 42 534, H=195m). We head towards the hill, on our left. After reaching the hill we head to the left around it, following a course that will bring us back to the school.  Access map. Walk around the Megali Rachi of Katouna (Starting point)
00:01 We are now at the crossroads in front of the hill and take the dirt track on the right, leading downwards.
00:02 We come to a fork and take the right hand downward path again.
00:20 As we move to the left around the hill, there is a magical view to our right. In the distance we can see the Prinkiponisia islands; the mountains and coast of Akarnania can also be made out. Just below us are the villages of Lygia and Nikiana.
00:22 We come to another fork and take the left-hand cement road, heading upwards, proceeding through a small densely vegetated ravine.
00:35 We emerge onto the asphalt country road and before us is the hamlet of Katouna.
00:37 After the first house we come to on our left, with a stone wall, and before we come out on to the provincial road, we take a 90 degree turn to the left on to a steep cement road.
00:45 Staying on the cement road we see to the right the school where we left our car. An easy walk – with fabulous views.
