    It is not considered a very difficult hike, a vivid proof of which is the fact that hundreds of people cross it daily from the opening (in May) till the closing of its visiting season (in October). It is a very pleasant hike, not a strenuous one, with many landscape alternations and a versatile environment.

    One should always keep in mind, however, that though the trail as a whole is not tricky, one should be more careful during some parts of the trek.

    The hike is not suggested for people facing health problems, or suffering from conditions affecting their lower extremities the elderly pregnant women.
