Description

A fairly short and easy trail (2½ - 2¾ hours), appropriate for any hiker, without big difference in elevation, trail 36 (yellow cross) starts from the former Varful cu Dor Hut and runs through Curmatura Dorului Saddle to reach Bolboci Hut in about 8 km.

From Dorului Valley plateau, cross Varful cu Dor dale on the new Valea Soarelui ski slope, leaving the northern corner of Barbes Fangs to the left, with large meadows with Rhododendron kotschyi, and the wide and grassy slopes of Furnica. From the confluence of Izvorul Dorului Valley with Varful cu Dor dale, climb on the road for articulated tractors, past two sheepfolds and get to the asphalt road that goes up close to Piatra Arsa.

From the plateau, continue on Nucet ridge and you can see the stone fortress of Mount Zanoaga, Lespezile, and far away the lonely Leaota Peak. Get into a saddle where there is a table, on the southwestern foot to Bolboci Dam, and enter the forest on a road for articulated tractors that descends steeply to the left bank of Bolboci Lake.
