The map shows the locations of all hiking trails. The markers indicate either the trailhead, or the destination. You can click on any marker to see the trail's name and the link to more detailed desription. Please note, that only short hikes are listed here. A separate section describes 10 most popular long-distance trails of Corsica including the famous GR20.
