Trescovat – DN 57

The route is easy and starts with a slow climb, surpassing some of the local farms. It goes on a forest road that is part of a valley and gradually climbs to the tops of hills. After about 30 minutes we reach a small promontory where we have a better picture to crown the first Trescovatului but also to the Danube.
Further follow the marks all the road. The climb gets worse for some parts and go out after about 20 minutes in a clearing. You can shorten the route, keeping up the forest road while marking down the meadow, making a wide detour.

The climb through the forest takes us out pretty quickly in a large meadow with a house and orchard. Overcome the house, crossed the orchard, looking to the right and markon the trees. We enroll on a coun quite wild, passing, at the forest edge, including another house and a shed of beams.
