Andros has a rich network of trails, in many cases paved.

This network connected the settlements with each other, with places of worship and with the ports of the island. From the middle of the 20th century and when the car gradually dominates, it limits their use. The paths are in several cases "cut" or replaced by non-motorized roads.

Andros today still has a particularly extensive network of hiking trails estimated to exceed 300km in length. The accessible network of hiking trails today amounts to approximately 150km. The routes are maintained - not always systematically - by regional and local authorities, sometimes with the help of volunteers from all over the world. The participation of local voluntary organizations and clubs is also important.

One can easily understand why these two words: Andros and Trails, have been linked so much in the minds of visitors. Andros is a unique island of the Cyclades with an abundance of water reserves, a mountainous character and an extremely varied landscape. Small forests, fertile valleys, numerous beaches, continuous flow ravines, waterfalls and springs on almost every slope and valley.

The continuous human presence has left visible marks even on the steepest slopes of the island, shaping with the basic material stone, a largely handmade landscape. The variety of rural architecture impresses, drystones, terraces, olive mills, and threshing floors. Over 200 recorded watermills, 69 windmills, bridges, several of which are arched, and hundreds of chapels are scattered throughout the island.
