Twisty singletrail that descends from Crucea Albă, an important landmark above Băile Herculane, to DN67D. The upper sections is more difficult, being narrower, looser and exposed, with big rocks from place to place. Then, as you enter the forest, it consists of a series of tight switchback until the end. Very fun to ride in wet.
The easiest way to ride this trail down is to climb on it too. The other option is to come from Mușuroane Glade, on a long hike-a-bike trail.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
