Hi everyone. This is my first time posting here and I need some advice. I walked the Francés last august and it was wonderful (maybe a bit hot). I would like to walk the del Norte but I have to start in the beginning of April. I know that it rains A LOT that time of year so I'm a little bit nervous to be honest. Also, I really like people and loved the social aspect of the Francés, will it be different on the del Norte? Especially in April? I'm a bit afraid to be by myself most of the time. I did walk alone a lot on the Francés but I loved that I could always walk with someone if I wanted too. Also I'm in my mid twenties and fairly athletic so I'm not scared of how hard the trail is rather that I will be the only one my age? Thanks everyone.
