From sparta you can go to anavriti by a 12 km road or a 7 km singletrack. there, in the traditional village (950m altidude) you take the forest road that leads to Soha 5 km of steep climb. then you take the E4 path that leads to Maganiari a fantastic trial on the male mountain . You climb for 6 km and then the adventure begins with 4 km of technical downhill. From maganiaris we have tow choices to continue on the E4 9you have to take the bike with the hands0 or the forest road 12 km . Whatever your choice is yiu will find 12 km of hard climbing. All the trail is in a beautiful forest. At the end of the exhausting climb we have a spendid view of the peak of taygetos (2407m usually covered with snow) with its pyramid like shpe or you can seethe sea. You can stay in the shelter and then head down for 21 km of exhilarating downhill. You can find whatever terrain you like rochy, sandy, muddy, snow-covered(Nov.-Apr.) Just anything. You pass a lot of historical sites(including the most ancient bridge of europe it stands there since 150 BC) and finish your trail on Ksirokambi if you want. There are so many trials that is hard to choose. But this one is a must for evey mountain biker visiting greece.
