The path follows the stream that flows through the gorge, and visitors have to wade through the shallow water at certain points.

Along the way, visitors will come across several small caves and niches, which were used in the past as shelters by the locals. These caves also served as hideouts for the resistance during World War II.
At the end of the Sarakina Gorge, visitors will reach a small waterfall and a refreshing pool, where they can take a dip and cool off. The waterfall is surrounded by greenery, creating a serene and tranquil environment.
Overall, Sarakina Gorge is a must-visit destination for nature lovers, hikers, and anyone seeking to experience the natural beauty and tranquility of Crete.
