The circuit route begins in the center of Şirnea village. The rout starts on the road to village Ciocanu, where you initially meet The Ethnographic Museum of Şirnea, a place where you can visit some of the local history.
The trail continues gently on a picturesque country road, with a great view over Bucegi Mountains until it meets the touristic mark “red stripe” and turns left between the houses, and after a few hundred meters the route turns left again, leaving the “red stripe”.

A traditional house is right in the path, and here you can taste traditional culinary products (different types of cheese).

The road begins to descend and the landscape changes: limestone formations prevail, culminating with the “The Devil’s Stone.” The route crosses the county road and heads on an easy road ascending to “Crai Nou” Pension.

From here, the landscape becomes panoramic with view to Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Mountains. Towards the end of the route, we pass a sheepfold that still retains traditional pastoral habits. After other short ascents, the trail begins to descend to the village center, where the travelers can cool off with cold water from the spring.
“The blue hiker sign” permanently accompanies the traveler on this route and the 2 parts of the route separated at the middle by the valley and the county road offer good visibility over the entire route. Optionally, you can walk the part of the county road from “The Devil’s Stone” to the national road, known as “Şirnii Road”.
