From the hunting house in Poiana Stanii meadow, walk uphill along Trail 7 (northwest) for approximately 500 meters and then leave it to the left. Follow the forest road at the edge of the forest and reach the upper end of the meadow on Paraul Alb valley. Follow the road up on the left slope of the valley and after 1.6 km, at elevation of 1,160 m, find traces of a hunting pavilion (intersection with Trail 19). From here, Trail 19 continues to the right through Paraul Alb Gorge. Follow the dry valley of Paraul Sterp brook in front of you. A few hundred meters higher, walk up past a temporary water source. The trail markers follow the dark stream of Paraul Sterp brook. It is quite a steep slope (about 40%). After walking one kilometer up (406 m difference in elevation), reach the final corrie of Paraul Sterp brook, full of tall shrubs. Climb the narrow winding road to the left side of the corrie until you reach its lowest point at an elevation of 1,764 m (intersection with Trail 7).
