Route condition- the route is composed mainly of forest road, the asphalt segments are between Ulmoasa and Băiţa and the road from Blidari to Baia Mare.
The route starts from the Stadium area to the Usturoiul Valley, there is asphalt to the last house. We follow 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, on Pleștioare. At the entrance to the forest, the road takes to the right and we begin to descend through the forest toward Ulmoasa. We pass through Ulmoasa (descent on asphalt) and as soon as we enter Băiţa and cross the bridge, we take it to the right, up on the Băiţa Valley.
We keep the road all in front until we reach a small dam, where there is a fork and we will take it slightly to the right past the valley that feeds the dam. We continue to climb until we reach a concrete bridge over the valley, located on the right side of the road. We will cross this bridge and continue the ascent until we reach the peak, to the Sonioca Forest Road. We will go down this road until we reach the barrier in Blidari. After we pass under the barrier, we will take it on the asphalt road to the right, towards Baia Mare.
