The GR 20 trail passes not far from the Cinto (Monte Cinto, to write it correctly), the highest point of Corsica (2706m); as there was a lot of snow on the GR 20 trail, we visited him, coming from the East, walking up the trail to the Erco hut, starting from Calacuccia. At the hut, you are still 900 m below the summit, but without snow, the walk up is not that difficult, according to my topoguide.
We stopped at Erco, and enjoyed beautiful views up the Erco valley. The walk to Erco takes about 2-3 hours (one way), and the trip is just beautiful in the meadows spotted with crocus, over the stone fields, passing by an old chapel (other tip), bathed by the wind on the ridges, rocked by the music of the small waterfalls and streams.
A few pictures of Cinto, on the way up to Erco; no sun that day:(
