Mud and more mud

There is a large section of very muddy paths between Gernika and Bilbao.
As a result this section requires great care and you may consider avoiding it.

:D "Mud, mud, glorious mud! Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood.
So follow me, follow, down to the hallow
and there let us wollow in glorious mud! ":D

Take care, yes, absolutely, Avoid?...well...just my opinion, but it's all part of the package. It can actually be fun, and there are always showers (well, unless you are in San Juan de Ortega in March after a day of this; then it's too cold to imagine going out to the showers...:eek:)

(And thanks, Flanders and Swan...your refrain has lightened up a lot of muddy days!)

Aaak! What a funny slip, and I hope not a Freudian one!:oops::eek::D (It actually makes a certain sense, which is incredible.)
And since it's immortalized in your post, I edited the original. :D

I went through the same last year. It is not fun to walk in muddy wet cold feet. This is when one would appreciate a mid height structured boots...people were loosing their shoes. ...

North route, May 2015
I just trudged through the mud a couple of days ago in sandals with many near misses too -- thankfully I had a hiking pole. There is also quite a bit of mud pre-Guernika too (i.e. from Markina-Xemein onwards), some people walked along the BI-2224 road instead, it is well-marked as it's the cycle camino route.
