The yellow cross trail starts from the bridge located at the entrance to Calimanesti spa town. From the left bank of the Olt, continue 100 meters on DN7 national road that heads to the south of the country. Then, turn left onto a forest road with a barrier. The first marker can be seen right off the road. After ~50 m from this point, get into a clearing where you change direction to the left (N) and start a steeper climb. After the first 12-15 minutes of climbing reach the edge of the forest and La Nucetel Meadow, but the marked trail remains in the coniferous forest. If you want, you can cross the wide glade that shelters a sheepfold and enjoy the view of the Olt Valley. Go back into the forest and the path reaches an intersection with a road that goes to the sheepfold, a less walked path to your left, but the yellow cross marking directs you to the E. The path becomes wide and clear and until it reaches La Troita Saddle, it takes you past two benches located on the left side. In the saddle, reach the intersection with the red stripe and the blue stripe trails that come here from two different directions: Turnu Monastery and Pausa.
