The course starts at the Carpathia Guesthouse and leaves the asphalt after aproximately 1,5 km, slightly ascending towards Valea Lungii (Lungii Valley). Following the marks, the stony path starts to ascend strongly, crossing the small stream for two times and arrives into a beautiful meadow that offers a wonderful view over the valley streching below us. From the meadow, the course continues to climb strongly through the forest and aproximately at mid-way it reaches the telecommunication (GSM) antenna, from where in clear weather one can see the Vlădeasa Peak, as well as the peaks of Buteasa in the distance.
From here the route descends towards Valea Daica (Daica Valley). During our descent from the col, on the right side we can see the Valea Brătcuței (Brătcuța Valley) as the descent continues facing the Green Course. The steep slope ends in a smooth valley and takes us again to the asphalt road, where we are only 1,5 km away from our destination.
