Route 7 – Dealul Vest

Download PDF

Traseul 7 “Dealul Vest” is located on the crest of Valea Calugareasca hill, in the west of Urlati. It offers a splendid and scenic panorama over the valley and its original landscape on terraced hills that are due to the former vineyards. The route crosses pastures, where local shepherds bring their flocks from May to October, and several hamlets that seem straight out of a fairy tale!

A bit of asfalt, a bit of forest, several steep slopes: this route is really various. Be careful with shepherd dogs: stop, get off of your bike and be sure the shepherd has seen you and will keep the dogs quiet.

We draw your attention on the fact that some signs could have been stolen or vandalized, particularly on the eastern side of the hill.
