Through part of the burn-out forest - from the devastating summer forest fires


Derelict buildings associated with the old marble quarrying industry


Up a steep bank


Beside an old marble-crushing plant
(small marble bits left from quarrying were crushed to make marble dust
-which is used to make the plaster for house walls)


Panoramic view from higher-up Pendeli (note the disused marble quarry)


On On


Floral life rises from the ashes (note burnt rock)


Spring flowers


And more


A steep rocky section of the trail
