    I would like to know how much it could cost to me if I would like to walk all the roads and how long it could take to me to do so. I am from Québec and I would like to walk when it is not too hot, around 15-23 degrees. When should I come? I wish to walk with your people that I do not know at all.
    Thank you for answering me.

      Hi Suzanne:

      This is Jim.

      There are 26 routes in total. However, Route 18-1 requires an overnight stay. So if you do one route a day you’ll be finished in about one month (rest days are important too). If you’re looking for 15-23 degrees then October or April/May are good times on the trail. Unfortunately I cannot answer about the cost. What kind of traveler are you? What are your spending habits?

      By the way, do you have experience on other walking trails? The Camino in Spain or Pacific Crest Trail in the US?

      Have a think and let me know some information and details.
