The approved route has, in addition to the beauty of the places, also a historical significance, as the front line of the Second World War crossed here. Even today you can still see the trenches and bunkers built to defend the Mures gorge.

The trail starts at the entrance to the village of Sălard, where there is a parking place with a drinking water spring, and climbs steeply through the forest, bypassing the cliffs. After the steep climb we reach the top of the Sărăcin Cliffs from where we have a very nice view over the Mures Valley.

The trail continues with a path that goes forward through the forest crossing from time to time small clearings and then descends steeply on a secondary ridge to the Mures Valley about 500 meters from the starting point.

We return along the road that crosses the gorge.
