The Menalon Trail, Stemnitsa

#4 of 11 in Parks in Arkadia Region
Menalon Trail runs in Gortynia, the western part of Arcadia, Peloponnese, Greece.

•The area is not just mountainous but it is also characterized by a rugged relief composed of extensive mountain ranges with continuous valleys, long canyons, big plateaus and bare peaks.

•On it Western border flows the river Ladonas, who spills into a big artificial lake, in its centre runs river Lousios while its southern border with the Megalopolis area and the prefecture of Ilia is underlined by the river Alphios.

•The biggest part of this area is covered by fir forest while high shrub forests and open meadows are spreading in lower and higher altitudes, as well as in areas where livestock rearing was intense all year round, like on the the mountain zone above Lagadia.

•The highest habitat diversity is found along the valley of Lousios river, a result of a dramatic geomorphology and intense human activities.
