An easy hike from Brașov to Stâna turistică restaurant in Poiana Brașov, which is actually an alternative to the more popular old road. This one takes you through Valea Sticlăriei, on a much quieter and wilder path.

Choose this route for the sake of a little variety. It's as easy as the old road (or Red Route), but not as wide or smooth. The path leads through the forest, crossing areas with rich carpets of dead leaves, and many roots popping out from the ground.

The path reaches Poiana Mică (where you enter Poiana Brasov resort); from here, you can continue towards Stâna Turistică Sergiana restaurant and possibly towards Râșnov.

The road is also suitable for children or for walking the dog (although at the exit to the main road there may be some dogs from the neighboring property).
