The Kyoto trail is a hiking course of 83.3 km around the Kyoto basin, running from Fushimi-Momoyama station to Kamikatsura station.
I hiked one part of Kyoto trail, from Ohara to Nishikamo on May 24th, 2020.

I hiked over 4 mountains and there were some shrines and temples in this course.
It’s a a long distance and the access from the center of Kyoto is not very convenient, also there are not so many viewing spot in this course.
If you want to go hiking and sight seeing, it’s better to walk around famous temples and shrines in the Kifune / Ohara area.
