An easy, less than a mile, path in the Koutsounari forest will take you to the 2nd larger waterfall of Crete . I beleive late May / early June is the best season to visit

It is about a 3km walk to the waterfall must take water and hat And good shoe. The waterfall is not very large but the water is very cold and clear drinkable.

Been 18 times on Crete, and couldn't found it.. Nowadays there are signs next to the road... Although a bit hot (35c), it was a very nice (steep) short hiking trip. From the 'parking' up to the waterfall is about 1500mtrs.
