An emblematic trail for this region, Priest is one of the oldest singletracks used for mountain-biking in Mehedinti. Some of the features that can be found here are more than 10 years old. It's a mixture of technical and fast sections, with a loose rocky surface. Except the rock-garden at the beginning, the upper part is quite easy and flowy. Things start to get rowdy once you get to the middle of the trail, as the terrain rapidly changes. The final bits of it are loose and rocky.

Access Info

As you're approaching the Topolniţa monastery, right after you cross a small bridge (a few meters before the church), there's a dirt road that goes left with a wall on its side. This trail finishes at the end of that wall. You can push your bike up, or you can go on Cracu cu Drum if you want more pedalling.

This trail is unsanctioned.
