Tanzania has the 90-kilometer-long Mount Kilimanjaro trek and the United States has the Pacific Crest Trail, stretching 4,270 kilometers from north to south.
These, and other long trails around the world, are laid out so trekkers can walk in safety, avoid getting lost, and find food and water along the way. If they succeed in completing the whole route, they may come away at the end with high satisfaction, a certificate, and, without a doubt, sore feet.

So, two long-distance hikers from Jalisco, Gabriel Román and Lucy Santana, decided to create their own.
