The route from Prionia (1100 m) to Spilios Agapitos Refuge (2100 m) is the most frequented hiking path on Mount Olympus and makes up a part of the E4. It is the continuation of the Litochoro – Prionia path. Prionia is the highest point which can be reached by car (it is 18 km from Litochoro) and here there are parking areas. The source of the Enipea River is also to be found here and a cafe-restaurant operates in Prionia all year long. The majority of the walk is through the forest. The path is in very good condition and the combination of thick pine trees with beech and fir trees lend a unique charm to the place. Spilios Agapitos Refuge is located on a natural flat surrounded by impressive age-old Bosnian pine trees.
