In the western part of Slatioara, at the confluence betweeen Ursului and Ion creeks, there is a signpost indicating the starting point for trails 23 (blue cross) and 24 (red triangle). Trail 24 goes up the road on Ion creek and after about 1 km there is a resting place and some boards that inform you that you are entering Codru Secular Slatioara forest reserve. Here the road goes along the wooden fences. The marking leaves the road to the right (NW) and climbs on a path that circumvents the fencing and soon intersects another more serious path that comes from the right. Climb this path through the secular forest, where man’s intervention is minimal. Have a break at a rock with a view and change direction to the right. Continue along the wooded ridge or occasionally on the left (southern) side of the ridge. There are alternating ascents and descents. Leave the forest and get in the beautiful Todirescu Meadow, where there is a wooden shelter. Continue on the left on the edge of the forest and get to the main ridge of the massif. On the left (S), at about 100 meters there is a well positioned trinity. The trail continues westwards and after just 200 m it reaches the road marked with red stripe (trail 3). On this excellent MTB road, together with trail 3 (red stripe) and other trails that join you along the way, reach Rarau Hotel in 4.2 km.
