Kurama trail done the reverse way as this path shows. Starting in the steep stairs of the temple, this is where most of the photos should be taken. It's first going up and then down. The reverse path is easier than the one this guide shows.
Both starting and finishing areas are kind of expensive, so prepare food on advance. There is no water between Kurama temple and the kaiseki restaurants near Kibuneguchi.
However, at the entrance of the path you can get wooden walking staffs which help a lot.
Landscape is beautiful, specially nice so close from Kioto, but nothing spectacular.
