If I wasn’t so darn old (71) my knee might not have blown out on the first day. It was gruelling we hiked 2000 meters up hill. Definitely take the gondola to the top and start from there. Took 4 hours out of a 16 hour day hike. It is a beautiful hike so don’t be discouraged by my comments. If your young and “FIT” do it.

Amazing!

Love it!! Great views, great and super friendly locals, superb pilgrim company!!!

My third Camino

Best of the tracks!

A moderate hike through chestnut forests and featuring magnificent valley views. Much of it is along a centuries-old trail built by the Genovese in the 18th century. The hike into and out from the valley is steep but not too difficult.

Absolutely breathtaking in everyway! honestly felt like heaven on earth.

the best I ever walked

Great Trail quiet easy and clean (some areas are quiet rocky) some nice views! if you wish to eat in an Auberge on the trail make sure you have some cash!

Belle randonnée relativement facile et propre! Attention cailloux sur certains passages! Prévoir du cash si vous voulez vous arrêter dans l’une des auberges!

Appli payante... aucun intérêt si on ne peut télécharger l'itinéraire. mais alltrails est renommé aux US.

A beautiful hike, in particular when there is snow around the lake. It's worth continuing to col d'Anterne for the view of Mont Blanc

Well traveled but the crowd thins out a bit after the first bay. The views are worth it!

A great hike after one night under the tent at the border of Pyrénées National Park.
A must-do although the top can be crowdy

Absolutely loved doing this hike. The trails are incredibly well marked. If not in shape like I was, it’s tough, but doable. Did the 11 days hike, about 10 miles a day. Did a mix of camping and refuges for overnights.

An amazing hike in the southwest of france! Been here twice and both times it took my breath away. There's a beautiful waterfall at the end of the hike.

Excellent trail, covers a lot of varied scenery and gives a great sense of the TMB contained within a single day. Beautiful views at the two lakes make the effort to reach there worthwhile but the two refuges the trail passes and the chance to stop for a drink high in the Alps really adds to an already excellent day.

Did part of the trail from Haut-Asco and north to Punto Gialba. Very beautiful but also very difficult with a lot of climbing. It was therefore difficult to pay attention to the wonderful views.

My study abroad group took a weekend trip to Annecy, France. Looking for local hikes, I found this one. The view was worth the steep ascent!

6 Days trail running with a great deal of training up front and overnights at hotels with luggage transport between (there are services for this). Pretty much one of the most glorious experiences ever - landscape changes every day and you get sheep, cows, rock goats,marmots, glaciers, rock scrambles, winding paths with fantastic resources along the way: water stops and rest stops with bathrooms and meals to buy.

Awesome!!! I did it twice!!!

I went this trail w two girls who hasn't done much hiking, and I suggested this one was rated as easy. Turned out to be reaching the head of Lion wasn't that easy for them and they found it quite challenging. Track isn't very clear to climbing rocks but you will not lose baring as where you are headed and which direction you are suited to go is very visible. There are also few other hikers and we all had multiple cuts from bushes Good walking shoes could help. Breathtaking views and good photo spots.

Muy variado. Excelentes paisajes. Bastante esforzado. Recomiendo 100%.
