We tried to drive up Mount Olympus from Dion, the road is not good and we turn around. I think you have to go to the other side of the mountain.

This area has us contemplating retirement and living here. The opportunity to spend the morning at the beach and the afternoon hiking the trails seems idyllic. We hiked the trail to the Holy Cave and we weren't ready to leave the mountain. At the very...More
