The blaze starts from Padiș together with the main road marked with the blue stripe towards Huedin. We leave the road where it turns left 180 at rate and starts climbing, then we go through a zone dolinas.

Where the road turns left, on a zone with slants we are left by

Padiș - Gârda de Sus

We climb onto the saddle, then soon descend to a tractor road. A bit downwards the Gura Apei cave is visible, the water is the emergence of Gârdișoara valley.

300 m downwards in the Gardisoara goerge there is the Coliba Ghiobului spring, in the right cliff we can find the Șura Popii cave. Going through a clearing we reach the Coiba Mică cave, where the water of Gârdișoara disappears.

According to this the valley is called Gârdișoara, down from here Gârda Seacă. After 400m, after the pass we get to the Coiba Mare cave, then going straight ahead the Casa de Piatră plateau. The road leads through the Gârda streamlet, then straight along it. Next to an old mill there is the roundabout which leads to the Tăuz emergence. We cross a clearing and next to a bridge we leave the road and climb on the Scărișoara platau, where we can find the Scărișoara ice cave.
