If you are still south of Munții Gutâi (the Gutâi Mountains), yet you want to go “beyond the hill”, to the Land of Maramureș, this is the way which takes you closest to Creasta Cocoșului (the Rooster’s Crest) – the giant volcanic rock which guards our eco-destination, at the same time putting distance between you and the busy main roads. The trail showcases forests and glades, inviting vistas, places which remind of imperial times or legendary outlaws. However, the joy of pedalling towards the foot of the Crest comes at a price: the route is not for everyone, but for the adventurous and trained cyclists.
