The track starts at Pietrele and ascends into the woods. In five minutes time we meet another road sign. Turns left:
Another long ascent, then a clearing, with a spring nearby. We keep climbing in the direction of the juniper firs. We cross Pietrele creek and now have to fight a more demanding ascent.
We go by large rocks and arrive at a large rock called Bordu Tomi.
We cross Pietrele creek again, and keep climbing until we reach lake Pietrele. We cross between two rocks in Bucura saddle and soon arrive at the ridge. The panel says: Curmătura Bucurei (2206m), there's a view on Bucura and the surounding lakes.
In the Bucura saddle we also meet the ridge route sign
Our track descends to lake Bucura. We find new route signs at Bucuretu (2070m.):
Next crossing at the threshold between lake Bucura and the other lakes:
We follow the red cross route sign, which goes right and arrives at lake Bucura
