After about 500 meters walk past the last guesthouses in Dambovicioara and enter Cheile Brusturetului gorge (2 km long). Cheile Brusturetului gorge consists of three areas with close walls (Cheia Lunga, Cheia Stramta and Cheita) that lead you to the southern part of Poiana Brusturet meadow (intersection with Trail 28). After 440 meters, Trail 31 remains to the left and then Valea cu Apa valley too. Reach Cabana Brusturet hut (1000 m) at the beginning of Valea Seaca a Pietrelor valley (intersection with Trail 32). Trail 32 remains to the right. Start a steep climb on Culmea Paduricii/Muchia lui Stinghie ridge. Follow the wooded ridge (300 meters altitude difference) to the meadows hosting Funduri sheepfolds.
