The trail is fantastic!  The overnight places  were fantastic, especially the swimming tanks. The trommels were moved  quickly and quietly. The staff are very nice.

The maps and our Garmins had different distances, with out Garmin’s saying each day was longer.  The toughness of the trail should be noted by hikers, this is not for everyone.

When we walked there was definitely no water on the trail, so be prepared to carry 2 to 3 liters each day.

Headlights are a great idea for night time, as even with the solar lights in the tents at the camps it is dark.
