Expect to navigate between clear sections of trail in wooded areas using ducks and marks on the exposed areas. The ascent to the Lochs Leven can be strenuous at points, mainly due to uneven rocky footing. Most of the elevation comes after the train tracks so you can gauge your progress.

First two thirds are good. But soon ish after salmon lake it’s all on a dust road. Not exactly wilderness. There are no signs for last third. The way is unclear or multiple options. You need to download the trail and follow that.
