Hello Gerald

I've been there many years ago and but I walked only the first part from park entrance to Mandara Hut, a wide, well worn path in the forest, a bit slimy (in rain season) but nothing else. At that time I had been in Moshi (200mt) for about one or two days so I didn't suffer or feel tired more than everyday, except for a soccer match we tried to play with local boys who were more at ease than us. I walked with regular walking shoes, because the trip was not preplanned, but I missed a pair of hard-soled boots because of some rocky stretches on the path. Have a nice trip
