The marked blue point starts from Peleaga glade, in the southwest direction, enters the forest and begins a smooth descent, parallel to the deep gully of Lapusnicu Mare. The slope is crossed by many springs, and if we turn right, we can admire Lapusnic Falls. From the place we enter the forest road we have to travel 15.5 km. After approx. 2 km from the scrubby bed of Scocul , until the Scocul Stănuleților we go alongside the steep slopes Albelor. In the Lunca Berhinei, we will walk past the starting places of the markers

Berhinei glade - Soarbele saddle Berhinei glade - Bucura Lake

After the bridge on the right you will see Slavei cottage, and after about 1.5 km from the bridge we reach the Rotunda Glade. The next landmark will be crossing the Cascade stream, after which we will soon enter a narrow gorge, where the Lapusnicul Mare waters form numerous waterfalls. At the bottom of the gorge we reach the confluence of Lapusnicul Mare with Lapusnicu Mic and the Gura Apei lake.
