Traseu nr 5 https://www.pcrai.ro/trasee-bicicleta
Traseu dificil din cauza diferentei de nivel.
Din dreptul Centrului de informare turistica din Zarnesti urmam indicatoarele catre Magura si Prapastii care ne vor directiona catre cabana Gura Raului unde drumul asfaltat se termina si incepe un drum forestier pe Valea Raului. Dupa o scurta urcare traversam o fosta cariera de piatra si intalnim in scurt timp un loc amenajat pentru activitatile de camping si picnic. Imediat dupa curba, pe partea dreapta, se afla Fantana lui Botorog, unde se poate face alimentarea cu apa. La Podul Magurii lasam in stanga drumul ce urca in sat si ne continuam traseul drept inainte catre chei, trecand pe langa captarile de apa si casuta paznicului. In curand ajungem la intrarea intre Prapastii, unde o bariera limiteaza accesul auto in acest spectaculos sector de chei. Drumul pietruit incepe sa urce sustinut printre peretii de calcar care adapostesc numeroase capre negre.
Dupa o sectiune de serpentine parasim drumul catre cabana Curmatura, o curba la stanga conducandu-ne catre poiana Vladusca si Table. O scurta coborare si ne continuam ascensiunea pana la finalul drumului de exploatare. De aici porneste prin padure o poteca marcata care strabate poiana Vladusca pana in punctul La Table, punct de intersectie pentru mai multe trasee turistice.
Se continua catre Grind si apoi coboara la Brusturet pe un drum bolovanos prin Valea Seaca a Pietrelor. In apropierea punctului La Table exista un izvor, necesar pentru rehidratare si refacerea proviziilor de apa. De la cabana Brusturet coboram pe un drum forestier catre Dambovicioara, strabatand mai intai spectaculoasele chei ale Brusturetului. Curand ajungem si la Pestera Dambovicioarei, unul dintre principalele puncte de atractie ale zonei, vizitata inca din sec. XVIII. Dupa ce vizitam pestera, ne continuam coborarea pana la o intersectie de unde incepe o urcare solicitanta pe asfalt spre satul Ciocanu. La intrarea in judetul Brasov asfaltul se termina si incepe coborarea spre satul Sirnea.
Dupa inca un sector de coborare urmeaza o urcare scurta, insa foarte abrupta care ne scoate in drumul asfaltat care urca din Moeciu in satul Pestera. La urcare, pe partea dreapta, se afla un izvor care poate servi la refacerea proviziilor de apa. Din capatul drumului asfaltat, traseul coboara in satul Magura, apoi la Fantana lui Botorog si, in final, in Zarnesti, completand astfel o tura complexa.
