Why you should do this route
How to follow the route
The trail itself is well-maintained the whole way round. There are no trail markers along the way whatsoever, however, so it’d be good to take a map/use a GPS app on your phone.
The hike itself will take you around four hours to complete, and good footwear is a must. You should also pack a rain jacket (and potentially rain trousers), even if the weather forecast is not predicting rain.
One final tip: You won’t have any phone signal from the moment you enter the park to the moment you first get up Cribyn. This means that if you plan on following a GPS track on your phone, you may want to ensure your maps are stored offline/accessible without data before you go.
