Directions

From Borsa Tourist Complex, the trail goes a little to the south on the road along Paraul Fantana brook. It makes its way among households, urging you to taste the waters of a mineral spring (borcut), it continues past a natural whirlpool (valtoare), subsequently turning into a tractor road. On the right, you can see the former marble quarry. As the valley remains to your right and becomes a dry valley, gently climb to the bottom of the deforested slope. To the west, you have a panoramic view of the rocky walls of Rapa Piatra Rea Nature Reserve. The road joined by trail markers soon reaches the bottom part of Cascada Cailor waterfall, where there is a road coming from the east, connecting the ski slopes in the area to the waterfall. Throughout the year, the limestone walls of Rapa Piatra Rea Nature Reserve witnesses the waterfall (over 80 m) of Cascada Cailor. From the waterfall, the trail climbs quite steeply towards Poiana Stiol meadow (about half an hour), where you come across the blue stripe trail (Trail 3). At this trail junction, there is also a crossroad: one road goes to the west, to the sheepfolds in Caldarea Cailor corrie, one goes to the north-east and continues to Izvorul Bistritei lake, and another road goes to the south-east, to Pasul Prislop pass. The third road is also accompanied by the red triangle trail which continues from Poiana Stiol meadow below Varful Stiol Peak (1611 m) in a very smooth descent. The farther you move from the way out of Poiana Stiol meadow, the closer you get to the forest. Nevertheless, the road gives you several chances to catch a glimpse of Gargalaul or the rest of the main ridge to Ineu. The smooth descent continues to the part where you get above Pasul Prislop pass, with switchbacks on a barren earthy slope, a future ski slope. From above, you can see Prislop monastery, the sheepfold situated at a short distance from it, and DN18 national road, the main link between Maramures and Bucovina. Before reaching the asphalt road, the trail goes through the yard of the monastery under a beautiful traditional wooden gate typical for this area. There are several buildings on other side of the national road, including Cabana Alpina hut. The trail ends in Pasul Prislop pass (1416 m), one of the highest passes in the Carpathians, where you can have another panoramic view of the main ridge of Rodna Mountains.
