From Rarau hermitage, climb along the fence, then past the hermitage’s cemetery and enter the forest. After 500 meters reach a road and some power poles that you start walking along for a long while. Trail markers are not visible anymore, but due to the power poles there are no orientation problems. There are almost 40 power poles, numbered 314 to 352. If at the beginning the trail follows the forest cut necessary for the power line, it further continues through the pasture and the view opens. You can see Zimbrului’s Rock to the left (W) - a vertical wall, and Popii Raraului to the right (NE) - some picturesque cliffs. On clear days you can see Pietrosul Bistritei in the south and Ceahlau Massif in the distance. At power pole no. 352 you get to the intersection with the road cut into Rarau slope, marked with red stripe, yellow cross, red cross and red triangle (trails 3, 18, 19, and 24). You continue along with these trails for more than 1.5 km to Rarau Hotel. Climb gently about 500 m to the blue dot signpost and go down to the Weather Station using shortcuts to avoid the twist and turning of the winding road. The Pastoral Hut (Mao’s Hut) and the Mountain Rescue Hut remain to the right (N), and the last part of the trail is through the forest, where you join trail 20 (blue cross).
