My suggestion is to look for a reliable tour guide if you have chosen to use a Aitona Cherry Blossom hiking group from Facebook, or Meet Up app. Be sure to check the reviews.
True story: the one that I have decided to follow, we have lost half of the group in the middle of our hike! Thankfully, the area was not difficult to navigate around, everyone was able to meet at the endpoint on time.
Check the view and choose the group carefully.
