Starting at Niculesti Forest Lodge, this is a continuation of the red triangle trail running from Gura Raului to Niculesti Forest Lodge. Up to Cindrel Mountain Hut, the trail shares its route with the red triangle trail. You follow the forest road along Raul Mare brook to the left. After a short while, you walk past Z Hut (Cabana Ziaristilor/The Journalists’ Hut) and then cross one of the river bends, where there is a rock with two small towers, called La Bisericuta, on the right bank. You continue on the forest road gently up to the confluence of the springs originating from Iezerul Mare and Iezerul Mic and forming Raul Mare. You cross a bridge to the left and follow the forest road to the end for approximately 1 km. Once there, you cross Iezerul Mare brook to the right and then a wide path, initially steeper then smoother, takes you to Cindrel Mountain Hut, which is situated on the river bank. Here, the trails split and you can reach Iezerul Mare by following the red triangle marking to the right. Your trail continues steep up to the left, on the path marked with blue triangle, initially through the forest, then through a dwarf pine area. After approximately 30 minutes, you can rest in Canaia Saddle, where you get to the intersection with the red stripe ridge trail and the blue triangle trail, which leads you to Canaia Mountain Hut and along Sadu Valley farther down.
