The GR20, on the mountainous Mediterranean island of Corsica, is reputated to be the toughest waymarked trail in Europe. This ambitious route for fit and agile walker covers 190km as it makes a complete traverse through the island's high mountains. It can be completed in about two weeks, and calls for backpacking the whole way, sometimes with hands-on scrambling along the way. Facilities are limited to a dozen mountain refuges and a mere handful of hotels or gites.
The 'classic' route is described in the guide, along with high and low-level alternatives, plus extra mountain climbs. This guide explains exactly what is involved in following the GR20, including what walkers need to carry.
This is an unashamable plug for Paddy Dillion's book. Its really excellent! Even the "foreigners" we met were using it- as it is both more accurate and relevent than the alternatives. If you think its too heavy, as my ultra light nut thought, just do what he did and cut it up- but don't leave for the GR20 without it." Posted on www.Outdoorsmagic.com discussion site, July 2006 'Paddy provides everything to know before tackling the route.' Strider LDWA, August 2006 This book is not only a good book, but a down to earth practical book. Paddy gives you all the pre trek beta, and doesn't hide anything. The photos in the book are excellent and leave you in no doubt of the breathtaking scenery. The recent new maps are an excellent improvement and make its usage far easier than the previous edition (impartial feedback). The Aitchison-Jones Walker's Handbook 2007
