Musashi and Ogose hiking

The Musashi and Ogose locates the southern area of Chichibu area and the western area of Tobu Ogose station. I walked this area at October 4. A hiking course is a course of the "Musashi Ogose hike rally" scheduled for October 25. It's a free event sponsored by Tobu Railways. There are three courses (Family course 7km, Enjoy course 17km, Challenge course 27km). I walked mainly a challenge course. It's about 27km length. You can get the course map at a station of Tobe railways.
