The trail starts from Solomon’s Rocks, at the end of the asphalt road (bus stop) (intersection with Trail 39). Follow the forest road for 160 meters and walk past the barrier on the road to Solomon’s Rocks and 640 meters further leave the road and veer right onto the wide path that leads to the picnic tables and the former fortress of Solomon’s Rocks. Walk past a signpost and tables and begin the ascent on the path through the deciduous forest. Walk for 575  m (20.6% slope) and get to the forest road that comes from Valea cu Apa valley. Turn left and 145 meters further leave the forest road and get onto the path to the left through the forest.

Turn left and 365 meters further reach Poiana Nisipului meadow where the route is common with that of Trail 52. Climb one kilometer on the forest road and get to another wider forest road. Turn right and 130 meters further reach a crossroads. Trail 52 and a variation of Trail 33 continue to the right. Turn left and climb 130 meters along a dale (21.6% slope). Come across Trail 33 (right) and climb 90 meters alongside this trail until it continues to the left to Valea cu Apa valley.

Walk for 300 meters on the left (climbing direction) side of Sulinar ski slope and get to the artificial lake in Ruia meadow. Walk around the left side of the lake (upstream) and reach Ruia chairlift pole. Continue straight ahead alongside Trail 49, cross the ski slope and walk along the forest road. An unmarked path turns left here and goes up the ski slope to Postavaru hut. You continue westwards, walk past the cable car line and a water station and reach the intersection with Trails 54 and 60. These two descend to Lupul ski slope. Turn left (common route with Trails 49, 54 and 60). Walk up 6 switchbacks for 435 m (18.2% slope) to Postavaru/Julius Romer hut (1,604 m).
