The trail starts on DJ105G county road, in Raul Sadului (Ciupari) village. Initially, you set out on a little paved street, along a small brook, you walk past a graveyard and shortly, you turn right. You follow the relatively steep path, initially through the forest and then through the grazing land, where the path climbs below the high voltage power lines. After this climb, you reach the red stripe ridge trail. From here, you continue to the right, toward the east, walk past Dragut Peak, from where you descend to Trandafirilor Meadow and then to Magura Saddle. From here, you return on Sadului Valley. You follow the signpost through the forest, descending along a wide well-defined path. After approximately 1 hour of rather steep descent, you reach the paved DJ105G county road and also the tail of Sadu II Lake. From here, you follow the road upstream to return to the starting point. This being a loop trail, it can be done in the reverse direction too.
