The way of the main ridge starts from the Arieșeni-Vîrtop pass, passing by the two- storeyed house of forestry, going on the forest path ahead. After 15 minutes it turns left, then after ten more minutes it gets to a streamlet, where we can refresh ourselves.

After ten minutes the road takes to the left and gets out of the forest. We have ascended 120 m so far. While climbing the next 300m we leave the road, as a glade and some serpentines follow.

After 40-60 minutes of climbing we get to 1500 m, here we turn left (do not go ahead!) and get out to the ridge. We go on the right way. After 20 min we reach the Piatra Grăitoare peak (1658m).

From here there comes a 10-15 minutes descending way to the Tarnita Bihorului saddle, from where we start to walk towards the high voltage pylons on the top of the next peak. This is called the Chicera peak. Within 30 minutes walk we can reach the Bihor Peak (1849m).

Here comes the blaze with the blue stripe.

Arieșeni-Tăul Mare

From here our blaze, together with the red and the blue line descends to the Bihor saddle, then to the Tăul Mare lake.
