From Vartop Saddle, descend on the asphalt road for about 10 minutes and, guided by the arrows on a power pole, turn left and climb between the cottages in the big meadow in the northeast of the resort. Reach the ridge, walk to the right and then go down through the forest to Ponita Saddle. From here, go up to Mount Glavoaia and then down to Cetatile Ponorului Hut. Continue on the road to the place called La Grajduri Meadow (Glavoi) and then leave the road to the right and climb to Balileasa Uvala. Get back to the road on the ridge and continue on it to a signpost that helps you find your way off the road, to the right. Climb on a dirt road, cross the paved road that goes up to Padis Tourist Complex, climb shortly through the forest and, after a short descent, reach Padis Plain. The trail continues to Varasoaia Meadow and reaches Varasoaia Saddle. From here, the red stripe marking continues and heads towards Vladeasa Mountains.
