Directions

From Cabana Gura Raului hut (750 m) follow the main road for 1.6 km to Fantana lui Botorog spring (together with Trails 10, 11, 12). Trail 11 leaves to the right and Trails 10 and 12 continue ahead. Walk left along the main road going up to Magura village (over Podul Magurii bridge). After two curves, leave the forest road and continue on a hollow. Climb 15 meters altitude difference (9% slope) to another curve of the road. Walk up among nettles and tall plants and climb 70 meters altitude difference (27% slope) and turn right 100 meters (to the west) and then another 100 meters (to the south) to another curve of the road. Leave the road and go left towards the forest and start a steep climb for 970 meters (230 m altitude difference, 24% slope) to the east, to a wide path. Walk along the path for 75 meters and reach the first long meadow below Varful Galbinarea peak (1350 m). After 520 meters up (60 m altitude difference), a shelter and wooden cross remain to the left. Climb 50 meters to the right (south) and leave the meadow after 150 meters. Climb 50 meters through the forest, walk through the second meadow with a demolished sheepfold and after 380 meters, when you see another shelter to the right, enter the forest again after a slight descent. Walk past the northern rocky ridge of Muntele Galbinarea mountain and reach the northeast part of Saua Magura saddle. Climb 170 meters to the shelter in front of you, where you come across Trail 26. Continue (southeast) to the foot of the front wall, walk right under it 110 meters, turn left and climb 60 meters altitude difference (26% slope) among the rocks to a panoramic point. From Saua Magura saddle to the next intersection with Trail 26, there will be, now and then, double markings along the way. Walk round Magura Mare peak, through the forest, and after 190 meters get to a saddle with a little meadow where you come across Trail 26. From here, the way to Bran is common with Trail 26. After a descent through the forest (110 m altitude difference), get out to a wide saddle with the last houses of the village of Moieciu de Sus (Maguricea hamlet). After 800 meters, cross the saddle over the stone fence of the highest house. Descend a few tens of meters through the forest and then continue through the long meadow on Culmea Magurii ridge, bwetween the forest line and the electric fence for animals. At 980 m altitude, get to the lower end of the meadow and begin a steep descent (28% slope ) for a distance of 830 meters to Poaiana Inimii Reginei Maria meadow (750 m altitude). To the left, at the edge of the forest, there is the crypt and the tomb with the heart of Queen Mary and 100 meters ahead cross the bridge over the Turcul river (Moieciu) (Piatra Craiului National Park boundary).
