Trail condition - the route is composed of forest roads and paths, the only asphalted sections being at the departure and the arrival from the urban area. Along the entire length of the route there are Feriga Trail signs, and the ridge part was arranged by The Golden Trails.
The route leaves from the area of the Statue of the Romanian Soldier, up on the Usturoiul Valley. After the road exits the city and enters the forest, we meet the first Feriga Trail directional panel on the left side of the road, we continue to follow these panels until we reach Feriga Peak. To reach Feriga Peak, we go through the road that climbs meandering, we pass the indicator to Route 66 and at 200 m after it we will take it to the left. To get on the top, we have a direct variant of climbing, in case we ride the e-bike or we can use the "chicken line" that goes to the left and describes two serpentines, in case we ride a bike without electrical assistance. Once in Feriga Peak, we prepare for the descent and we will approach the Feriga 1 Trail, which starts straight down and is marked with red directional panels. We will follow these panels until we pass a narrow path, bordered by a dense stand, and when the path suddenly turns left, we will go forward to the left side, a small panel "Exit Magura" will appear on the left side. Following this exit, we get behind Magura Restaurant, on Valea Roşie Street. If we do not want to take the exit to Magura, we can continue the Feriga Trail route, by following the markings and considering that the following section is one of high difficulty. The Feriga Trails were arranged by The Golden Trails.
