The blue dot trail starts on Valea Rebra valley, at the intersection with Izvorul Arsitei. There is a signpost here. It is worth making a detour and taste the mineral water of Izvorul Carpathia spring, on the left side of the road (you can get here by descending some steps next to a football field). Before the paved road ends, leave Valea Izvorul Arsitei valley heat and continue uphill on a country road (north-west). There are no trail markers until the end of the street, when you first see them on the wall of a house. Then, there are two or three more, the last one being marked on the last house. Climb (north) until you reach a saddle. There are many roads here, new and old, and there are no trail markers. It is important to continue to the north-east until you get below Varful Bacsa peak. Varful Bacsa peak (1325 m) can easily be identified as it is a deforestation. Walk around it, to the south-east, and reach another saddle and another crossroad. The trail markers from the beginning are still missing. From the saddle you no longer walk along the contour line, but you climb on the tractor road (east) to the sheepfold in the area, below Varful Caldarusei peak (1627 m). There are many forest roads in the area you are heading and it is important to know the direction to follow. Stay below the ridge with Caldarusei, Barlea and Capu Muntelui peaks, in the area of Varful Barlea peak, close to the forest edge, and further start a gradual descent. Occasionally, these roads seem to be used by people with horses or herds of sheep. You have to stay in the same area with the many forest roads that lead you down to the small meadow, where there is a wooden hut. You are approaching a valley, as there is another ridge on the other side, to the north. !!!Attention!!! The blue stripe trail markers are absent throughout the entire way from the end of the village to Valea Izvorului valley, so it is important to have good orientation skills using the map. From your direction, turn right (east) on Valea Izvorul Negru valley. The wilderness of the trail becomes even more pronounced and for about 2 hours you actually have to walk along the stream, from stone to stone, avoiding to get wet. Surprisingly, on this part, you can see four blue stripe trail markers far one from another and hardly visible, appearing out of nowhere. To the end of Valea Izvorul Negru valley, come across a tractor road. Follow it to Rebra stream, where you reach the last obstacle of the trail, the cold and almost 1 meter deep waters of Rebra stream that you have to cross. Once you get to the road on Valea Rebra valley, there is a forest lodge (Canton Izvorul Negru) on the side of the road and a signpost indicates the trail described above, or TA (Trail 13) from Valea Rebra valley.
