Ascent Trip Report

Followed the marked trail "Kaledonia" via the waterfall to the old Troodos road. From the visitor centre, followed the dry stream bed W to a giant "Pinus Negra" with signboard. From there past the Ski club hut, forking right up the ski run direct tot he summit. Return jogging down the roads to Troodos etc.

Some nice patches of woodland, shame about all the building on top.
