  • If you start early in the morning it is still alone on the road! And that's very nice! We machetes many stops and enjoyed the view, the beautiful flowers and the tranquility of nature.

For the stroke in the Woods (about 1 km side Mountain view) applies the general rule of making noise to avoid running into a bear.
