As part of the preparations for this year's tourist season, several of Agia Roumeli's residents came up with a grassroots initiative to improve the E4 walking route leading west of the town. Particular attention was focused on a very difficult section at the point called "πορι". This is a place where there have been cases of getting lost and deviation from the trail. In order to avoid such situations, volunteers would unravel about 500 m of steel rope marking the course of the route. In addition, solar lanterns were attached to some posts. They are to facilitate the orientation of those who will overcome this route at night.
It is worth mentioning that the section of the E4 route linking Agia Roumeli and Sougia did not enjoy a good reputation. For many people, it is considered one of the most difficult and dangerous sections. In previous years, there were many unfortunate accidents that often required the involvement of emergency services.
