This leg covers only Caraş-Severin county, which makes it an excellent opportunity to fully explore the area.
Some stages of the route are, according to the official guide, shorter. Especially in the first days, you enter several former industrial cities, an opportunity to notice their evolution after the closure of the steel factories till the present day.
Given the small gradient of most trails along the route, less active trekkers have a good chance of actually finishing most trails on the route. And if you dare to try this route by mountain bike, the distances will seem even shorter!
Among the attractions along the way are the Caraș Gorges, the Izvoarele Nerei UNESCO reserve, the Comarnic Cave, the Croatian village of Carașova, Poiana Mărului lake & meadow, Gozna or Trei Ape lakes.
