The red triangle route joins together the blue band in Victoria and continues on the forest road passing through Sumerna. Approximately 2 km is a forest road from the right, but the marks go forward, leave a park with photovoltaic panels on the right and we reach a crossroads of forest roads. Here we are leaving the blue band, which is heading for Sipot.

Victoria-La Șipot

We continue to the right, towards the Arpașul Mare valley. After 3.5-4 km we reach another intersection of forest roads, here we continue on the left. After another 3 km, the forest road ends and we enter the steep path. After approx. 45 minutes we reach the Ban creek and after another 40-45 minutes at Gura Podragului. From here, we climb into broad serpentines admiring the waterfalls of the Podragu valley. We cross the Podragul creek and reach the confluence of the Arpașul Mare brook with Podragu. The trail goes down the left bank of Podragu breek. After 1 1/2 we get to Cottage Turnuri.

From here, the brook passes again and climbs into the lower valley of the Podragu river, passing an area of grove and boulders. After circling a leg of the Edge Turnuri we reach the upper valley of Podragu. At approx. 2 -2.5 hours we get to Podragu. Here we find the markings:
