Directions

The trail starts from the village of Bucerdea Vinoasa. Get out of the village and when you get to a wooden crucifix, leave the main road and continue to the right, on a tractor road. Walk along the forest edge, then through a corridor in the forest, and at a crossroads turn right and soon reach a road that comes from Craiva village. Follow this road cut into the hillside to a well-built sheepfold. There is a spring less than 400 m away and trail 21 (blue dot) starts here and goes up on Piatra Craivii Rock. Your route goes round the rock, to the west, and soon joins trail 1 (red stripe) to continue for a long while on a road that winds through scarce oak trees, going round Sfredelasul Peak (to the left - SW). Leave trail 1 (red stripe) and continue on the road that crosses a patch of forest, some grasslands, then again forest, until you get to a small meadow, where a trail marker on a thin tree indicates a change of direction to the right. Here, leave the road that you have been walking on for a long time and descend a steep serpentine path through the forest, past a spring where you can have a break. The path descends parallel to Turcului creek, but you will only join it down, when you reach the road. Continue on the road for about 3 km and walk through the villages of Intregalde and Modolesti. On the outskirts of the village of Modolesti, the trail goes up on a foot hill, between households. Enjoy a beautiful view over the valley. Enter the forest for a short while and then walk on the edge of a precipice bordered by pine trees. Once you get on a small peak, descend on a plateau riddled with sinkholes, with a signpost in the middle. Here, turn slightly to the right (east), cross a patch of trees and continue on a winding road that descends to a group of households that belong to Tecsesti village. This is where the daffodil meadow is (protected area). Piatra Cetii Rock rises in front of you. The trail switchbacks take you up through a meadow and out of the forest, where the scenery is magnificent. Walk on the edge of the rocks and quickly gain elevation. There is a pit cave near the top, as indicated by a board. The way down is demanding as it is pretty steep. Reach the first households of the village of Raicani and get to the intersection with trail 1 (red stripe). From here, continue on a road on the interfluve. Get close to Cetea Gorge, in a scenic area with rocks. From an old stone cross, descend steeply into the valley, where a signpost indicates a 200 m deviation to the Roman Baths. After visiting the impressive waterfall, you continue on the foot path that becomes much better and reach some orchards, approaching Cetea village. The trail marking continues for 2 more km in the village, to the asphalt road, where there is a signpost.
