The route starts from Breaza and follows the paved road to Moldova Sulita where we enter a forest road through Cheile Lucavei, a gentle climb of 7 km to the Lucina stud.

From the stud, we enter the forest road to Obcioara, the first 2km being the most difficult part of the whole route: a steep climb (about 15% inclination) sometimes with grohotis. Towards the end of the climb you reach a plateau with a beautiful panorama: Rarau, Giumalau, Rodnei.

There are about 15km of trail along the carriage road along the Mestecanis to the Manaila quarry where we enter a forest, a rapid descent of 10km to Botus.

From Botus 10 km on asphalt to Breaza.

In summer, attention to stallion dogs. The ideal route to travel: April to May, September to October.
