It is the second mountain bike route in Straja Resort/Lupeni, made in the summer of 2017.

The starting point of the route is located next to the green cage of the Baloo bear, more precisely, in the parking lot behind the Montana Complex.

The Baloo route winds down the valley on an 80-100 cm wide path with naturally built earthen slopes along the gondola in the resort. The route combines the beech forest with the meadows and the ski slope to the gondola boarding station.

The last 200 meters overlap with the Wolf Route where the terrain becomes a little more difficult.
