Hi carl b,

I affraid there is no magic solution to your problem. You could leave the car in Haut Asco and then make the 3 day trips to Calenzana. I think the only realistic way to get back to the car again in Haut Asco would be to hitch hike. A taxi will cost several hundred Euros. I have done this before and found it quite easy - the hitch hiking I mean - the GR20 is no stroll in the park, but certainly worth your while.

Have a great vacation.

Kind regards

I echo Trine's warning. The GR20 is a serious challenge to the fittest of hikers and should not be undertaken lightly. I'm a little confused about just what you are doing. Corte is not on the GR20 and Haut Asco seems a somewhat peculiar choice. Far better I would have thought to choose somewhere that has reasonable pubic transport, the prime example being Vizzavona, which has a train station and bus services. The GR200 passes through few villages and travel back to anywhere is going to be very difficult. You might be better to consider the other long distance footpaths on the island, Mare a Mare and Mare e Monte north central and south do at least pass through villages regularly giving you more options.
