After a work meeting in the Paraul Rece area the weather was incredibly good so I could not miss the local offroad opportunities.
Starting on DN73A (from Predeal to Rasnov), at the bottom of the descent there is a small road to the right, going “up” to “the priests”. I firs took that road, which was taken care of, almost completely cleaned of snow.
However, I suggest wearing chains if you go on snow, because I did get stuck with the Simex tyres after one 180 degrees turn – the tires were polishing the icy snow and the car was stuck. I had a winch so I was able to move the car to get some snow under the wheels.
Here’s the track, the sinuos road to the left is DN73A (Predeal – Rasnov), after descending from Paraul Rece
It was fun for a warm up, and also a great opportunity to take some (nice?) photos:
Very quick we went back because the action until now was NOT (!) enough 🙂 For convenience we took the same road, did not bother to explore the possibility to go directly downhill:
Back on the DN73A road we turned right, and headed to Rasnov, where we were instructed to take “Drumul Glajeriei” up to it’s end, and then on a forest road to Tohanul Nou. I am having a rough time trying to draw this on the map (I can not find enough points and I did not have GPS with me), so I will only be able to show you the beautiful sites I encountered:
And just look at the glorious finish of the forest road:
