Paros is a great island for walkers--that includes Antiparos. There are a few off-road foot paths and a great many unpaved back roads.
This photo is of our favourite: out our door, through Aliki and along the coast to the North. We usually go about 15 minutes out to a nice beach that has a lot of shells and other flotsam and jetsam. The more intrepid can walk all the way to the Pounda ferry port, I'm guessing about 6 km.
Many people like the history-laden Byzantine Trail between Lefkas and Podromos--all down hill.
Foxy, a walking hobbyist from the UK, has recently added several pages about walking on Paros to their web site. It includes several walks and plentiful photos.
Other friends from the UK who belong to a walking club there and live part of the year here are setting up guided walks. So if you either want to bring a group or come on your own and be on your own e-mail us for helpful information.

hello, this concerns Paros Shepherd who wrote a piece on Walks on Paros. He mentions one should email him for further information, but unfortunately didn't leave an email address. Could he please come back to me at email@example.com
I'll arrive by ferry at Paros on 22 June and would love to do some walking around Lefkas-Podromos, also perhaps be based in private accommodation in one of these villages - perhaps he could give me some advice. I#d be very grateful if he could contact me, or leave a commentary.Many thanks, christiane
