The trail starts from the place called Rozdesti, along the forest road, past another forest lodge. After a bit more than 1 hour from the starting point, you reach Susmita dam. Slightly farther up, you cross Sadu Brook to the right, on a wooden footbridge. (This section is marked with red triangle, the next section being marked with both red triangle and blue triangle.) You walk past Serbanei Forest Lodge and turn left, cross the water stream of Serbanei Brook and follow the trail on a path that crosses a thick spruce forest relatively steeply. After approximately 1 hour from Sadului Valley, you get on a ridge covered with dwarf pines, cross it and get to a grazing land, where you turn slightly left, crossing a forest section to reach Canaia Mountain Hut. The path zigzags behind the hut and after approximately 30 minutes, you reach Canaia Saddle, from where you can either climb toward Cindrel Peak following the red stripe marking to the left, toward Paltinis to the right or descend toward Raul Mare Valley following the blue triangle marking.
