A stunningly beautiful trail with a nice climb.   Wanders along a beautiful mountain stream on a rough mountain road, through a beautiful gorge (with a very nice cave) then enters the forest, and up on the plains.  Beautiful views of Retezat National Park and the War Memorial (where Rommel?).   Side tours include a beautiful waterfall, a shepherds village, etc.  (Ascent and Descent different because I turned on GPS late!).
