    going up/down to the back door

    The path going up to the back door is very muddy.
    The path going down to the back door is very muddy.


    Are the both sentences correct?
    If yes, then, I wonder what is the diference between these sentences as to meaning.

    Both are fine.

    No difference in meaning - merely in context.
