In June 2000 i walked with a friend a part of the GR20 on Corsica. Not the whole trail, only the northern part from Vizzavona to Calenzana. The GR20 is certainly not the easiest of all long distance mountain walks. A good head for heights and a good condition are required. Certainly not recommended for newbie hikers!
Here are some pictures with short discriptions
