The Route 4 is the gate to the Dealu Mare region from Ploiesti. It connects the Cricov Valley to downtown Ploiesti by the North. It is route is well-known by professional cyclists, as it was a part of the itineray for the National Cycling Championship in June 2014.
The route crosses several villages and reaches the top of the Varbila plateau, across the forest (but still on asphalt). The slope to the village of Varbila is very steep – try to to climb it up if you like challenges!
