The dirt road goes above the large village of Males but not through it. To your left and right there are enormous pine trees and holm-oak trees. Looking to the right and below, you can admire the view of the Libyan Sea and the town of Ierapetra. Continue along the various dirt roads until you reach the asphalt road which leads to the village of Prina, one kilometer away.
Leaving Prina, take the dirt road that goes to the small village of Meseleri, where the pine forest ends. Go through the village and continue uphill, passing by the monastery of Vriomeni located above the village of Stavros. The dirt road continues and meets with another dirt road, which comes from the settlement of Asari. Here under the huge plane tree, you can rest and fill up your canteen with water. From this spring, you continue northeast on the downhill dirt road towards the village of Vasiliki, which is surrounded by countless olive tees.
