An easy trail of about 22 km that takes you around the imposing Magura Mare, a ‘tower’ over Somesul Mare and Ilva valleys. Start from Rodna village and follow the gravel road that climbs gently to Saliste Saddle. Reach the saddle, on the interfluve between the two rivers mentioned above, and have a break to admire the beautiful pyramids of Rodnei Mountains – Rosu, Ineu and Ineut peaks, or Heniu Peak in Bargau Mountains. Then take the speedy downhill to Magura Ilvei and speed up once you get to the asphalt. Head west, bike past a huge quarry and somewhere close to the entrance to Poiana Ilvei, leave the asphalt and start climbing on Poienii Hill on a wagon road that can become very muddy in case of rain. Reach a small saddle and enjoy the panoramic view of Maieru to where you descent in a speedy downhill. Get to the asphalt and return to Rodna on DN17D national road, cycling through Anies village.
