We are thinking of spending a day walking in the Troodos next time we are out.
From what I remember of our last visit to Troodos, there were some marked trails of various lengths starting near the village centre.
I'm looking for a bit of information on how many trails there are & how long they are.
We're both pretty fit and have the appropriate walking shoes, just trying to get an idea of how long to allow for a reasonable sightseeing hike.

The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO), the Forestry Department - and the EU - have identified and promoted scores of different walks/trails on the island, with information on time required for the walks/treks, the degree of difficulty, and whether they are accessible to the disabled.

One example of listings is at:

I can recommend the following, the trail starts a little way up from the Troodos square.

Artemis Trail (Circular)
Starting point: 300 m from the junction between the Chionistra road and the Troodos Prodromos road at an altitude of 1850m
Length: 7 km Duration: 2,5-3 hours Degree of difficulty: 1
Points of interest: The Pinus Nigra forest, rare species of flora and rocks of the area. Of historic interest are the ruins of rough fortifications built during the final year of the Venetian occupation of Cyprus (1571 AD) by a group of Venetian generals who decided to put up a defence against the Ottomans at that point. The route is circular going round Olympos mountain peak (Chionistra) at an altitude of 1850m. Provides spectacular views in all directions. It ends at a point on the Atalanti trail.

cheers
Rob

Thanks Peeps, spot on.
Journo,
I did a Google search first, maybe if I hadn't typed "Toodos" I might have had more success!

Just got back from our little hike.
Ended up doing the Atlantis trail in the end.
Thoroughly enjoyed it even though it was very rough and rocky in places, lots of care needed.
Judging by the state of the road up to Troodos it's had a hammering in the winter and the trails may be suffering from weather damage as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed the walks with Rob's group especially when we were new to this end of the island and were living in Kapparis.

The Anglican Church Deryneia also have a small group of walkers who do a monthly walk. Now the weather is warmer these may be less frequent or an evening walk . All are welcome and can contact the church for details.
