MMTR-2013-full-track imageBelow is the 2013 route. GPS is a useful tool, but not perfectly accurate. Distances will be slightly longer than represented below as the track was simplified. The height changes may be less than shown due to inaccuracies of GPS spot heights recorded at the bottoms of river gorges.
