Once you get out of Moscow the trail really shows it’s colors, in our case, the autumn yellow of the many forests that you pass through. There are no major uphills, and the you can easily access food from town or hotels if you don’t feel like camping. Blue spray paint on trees is used to mark the forest sections of the trail which is convenient as you want to save battery on your phone. The trail passes by many historical sites and walking through the villages gives you a glimpse of local life. It’s a good trail for people wanting to try out multiple day hikes.

Good interesting climbing route. Start from the shelter at 4 a.m., be sure to bring climbing cats with you, an ice ax is not necessary, tracking poles are enough, have a supply of water. With good physical preparation both ways, you can manage for 7 hours.
