I'm thinking about making a small part of this trip with my wife. We're planning on doing 5-6 days on the trail, but still deciding on which portion of the GR-5 and/or GR-52 to do- somewhere between Larche and Menton.
We're experienced hikers in our small corner of the Eastern US. But our hikes are in the rolling hills of Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee- certainly not Alpine terrain!
I have a question for anyone who has experience on this trail. Our general rule of thumb is to avoid hikes where a false step or slip will lead to a serious fall, injury, or death. Are there points on this trail that fit this description? Are there certain stretches that are less perilous than others? We're young and fit, and have no problems with strenuous hiking. But we like to have our feet on a firm trail, with room for error or trips.
