The red triangle trail starts at Plaiul Foii foresters lodge. It crosses the water and soon reaches a crossroads where we turn left accompanied by the blue triangle and blue streak trails. After walking about 1 km we reach the point where Bârsei Tămașului és Valea Runcului brooks meet. We climb to Plaiul Mare clearing and we proceed to Curmătura Foii. Aici este o răscruce de drumuri, cu potecă marcată spre Piatra Craiului. We turn left and climb to Tămașul Mare peak (1735m). Once we descend crossing a number of peaks we reach Curmătura Lerescului Mic, 1450m. Here come the markings:
