General characteristics



Follow the road (DN 67D) that connects Băile Herculane town with "Baia de Aramă", trough the Cerna Valley. Park your car at the milestone that shows "9 km to Băile Herculane" (it is on the backside of the milestone, when you come from Băile Herculane town). On the other side there is a narrow staircase in the sidewall of the road. Take the stairs and follow the path in the woods. The path is marked with a black "X". You will reach "Sector 1" from the guidebook. From here you will have different sectors to the right and to the left. The nearest water-source is a spring at the drive-in of the last house, on the right side of the road, before you reach the milestone where you will park.
