Cinque Terre trail times information

When planning a hiking trip it is crucial to know how long will it take to reach your destination. That is why hiking distances are usually measured in hours.

Last week I came across a table including most of the paths in the Cinque Terre National Park. Walking times are a big part of it.

Unfortunately this was a bit late for me, because I just got back from the area. Here it is anyway - only for you.

We were sad to leave the place without trying out at least a couple more of the tempting paths. We had to head back home at least a few days too early. Maybe next time...

Hi Marko, We were given a little sheet with the trail details on it when we purchased our 5Terra Train card. It was very useful as it also gave the distances. Although limited for time we found it a good idea.

I hope those trail details look similar to the ones published in this post. :)
We also saw various maps and leaflets (both purchasable and free ones) at many info points in the area. I agree those can be the best source of info for a hiker. They should also be up to date.
