The first trail in Rucar-Bran Pass winds on the foot of the Piatra Craiului Mountains, starting in Moieciu de Jos. Go up on the main road to the village of Magura. The higher you climb the more spectacular the landscape becomes. Then, descend into Prapastiilor Valley and change the direction westward, riding between the impressive walls of Zarnesti Gorge. At the end of the gorge, cross into Vladusca Valley and continue (the road later becomes narrow, then it turns into a path) to its source, in the area called La Table / Vladusca Saddle. From here, change direction again, this time to the south, and follow the road that takes you up to Curmatura Groapelor Saddle. Cross in N-NE direction and carefully reach the center of Pestera village in a short while. From here, you do not descend on the main road, but ride towards Magura and after about 2 km turn right and go down the wagon road along Valea cu Calea Valley. Reach the asphalt road and soon get back to the starting point in Moieciu de Jos.
