The only part that's left of this trail, after the upper one was destroyed in 2016 by deforestation. It's very rocky and straight on the ridge and has a few turns when it enters the forest. Unfortunately, the best way to ride it is to push your bike all the way up.

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.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

Disclaimer

Watch out for vipers whenever it's warm outside, as there are plenty of them around
