Will I get lost? How is way-marking on the trail?
These are questions that pop up now again from walkers around the world. But every trail in the world has their own way and amount of way-marking, so it’s somewhat problematic to give a blanket answer in return.

Members of the Olle Academy submit images of trail issues when they are out walking, too.
