Let me help you find the path.

Starting point is exact location at which I started hiking trip. Usually it is parking lote. Please note, that my hiking trips are never close because I like to explore. If you want to get closer to the goal, use my starting point as a reference in maps and you can chose something closer to the destination. Sometimes I walk few kilometers, but sometimes even 10 or 12 km in one directon.
