Predeal - Valea Leucii - Valea Iadului - Dihamul Militar - Şaua Baiului

Description

Situated at an elevation of over 1,100 m, Predeal is primarily recommended as a ski resort. However, the history of the area should not be forgotten. The settlement came to life with the construction and putting into operation of Ploiesti - Brasov railway line and Predeal Train Station, at the former border between Romania and Austria - Hungary. Due to its geographic, climatic and aesthetic peculiarities, Predeal has great tourist potential, with many mountain trails, being the highest urban settlement in the country. One of these trails is the one to Baiului Saddle through Leuca and Iadului valleys (red triangle).

Start from Predeal, on the national road to Azuga, follow DN73A past Rasnoava Military Unit and continue on a forest road on Leuca Valley for about 4 km. The valley is wide and the climb is easy. Muchia Leucii edge is on the right side and Clabucetul Baiului on the left. In the middle of the valley, enter the forest, reach the confluence with Iadului Valley, climb steeply on the winding trail, and get to the Mountain Huntsmen's cabin (connection with trails 13, 14, 15).

Get to Baiului Saddle and see the blue triangle marking coming from Busteni via Gura Dihamului (trail 12) and the blue cross marking that comes from Poiana Izvoarelor Hut (trail 45). Enjoy the delightful panoramic view of Morarul and Bucsoiu.
