Route condition - the route is composed mainly of unpaved roads, forests and paths. On the asphalt road you go on the Ulmoasa - Băiţa section and on departure and arrival on the streets that belong to Baia Mare.
The route traveled starts from the Stadium area, towards the Usturoiul Valley, going on asphalt to the last house. We go on the forest road that goes up, we pass by the Usturoiul Chalet fallen into disrepair and we reach the barrier located near the Usturoiul Chalet 2. After we pass the barrier, we take it to the left and climb the forest road that meanders until we reach the top, where at the entrance to the forest the road takes it to the right and we begin to descend through the forest to Ulmoasa. We pass through Ulmoasa (descent on asphalt) and cross the bridge to Băiţa. We go through Băiţa to Tăuții Măgherăuș and take it to the left, cross the river on the Cota bridge on street no. 4 and we go straight on an unpaved road, which passes through the residential area and then slightly ascents. At the end of the residential area, we take it to the right and go through the road that crosses the former orchard and goes out into Apa Sărată. We take it to the right on the paved road to the intersection with the road to Dru Relax, a place from which we take it to the left, pass by Dru Relax and climb straight up to the top of the hill.
From here we take it to the left on the ridge, towards the forest, passing by an old abandoned house, located on the right side of the road and near a few vineyards, after which we enter the forest. From the forest we take the second road to the right and descend by the fence of a house, to the spring in the Borcut valley. From the spring we take it to the right towards Baia Mare and then on the second road to the left (after an old house plated with brown and yellow ceramic tiles). The road climbs steeply to the last house, where we take it to the right and climb the gravel road, until we reach the asphalt road on Miron Costin Street, from which we descend to Victoriei Street.
