This is a forest track, stretching over 2km, which was released many years ago for a water supply project in the region, but was hence abandoned, and has now become a trail. It ascends through a thick pine forest, which spans over the western slopes of Mt. Karvounis, and concludes on the central forest road which cuts through Mt. Karvounis from west to east. From here, with a good hiking map at hand, you can follow whichever forest path you prefer and emerge in the marked hiking routes on the northern slope of Karvounis, in the Manolates-Vourliotes area.
