Highlights

  • Enjoy the stunning scenery of the Faget Forest.

  • Get great views out over Cluj-Napoca from the top of a small hill.

  • Take advantage of the relatively easy trails and bring the whole family along.

Description

Situated just 25 minutes southwest of Cluj-Napoca, the Faget Forest is an ideal spot for heading out on a day-long mountain biking odyssey!

While plenty of trails crisscross through this thick and verdant forest, one of the most popular options is to take the 21.2-kilometer Faget Forest Route.

Starting near the town of Floresti, the route takes us through the forest and gradually up a hill until we head out above the trees and receive some magnificent views back over Cluj-Napoca as well as out toward the Carpathian Mountains.

While 21 kilometers may seem like a long way, on a bicycle the kilometers will fly by. Overall, expect to gain and then lose about 500 meters in elevation with a maximum grade of 13 percent.

The relative ease of this route, which is used for the annual MTB marathon, makes it perfect for  families and groups of friends looking for a relaxing day trip out of doors.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and scenic 1-day mountain biking adventure in the Faget Forest, near Cluj-Napoca!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you may also enjoy my 1-day mountain biking trip along the Baioara trail MBT in the Apuseni Mountains, also near Cluj Napoca!

About the guide

My name is Catalin. I am based in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I am a passionate skier, mountain biker, climber and photographer, certified as a Mountain Guide, Ski Instructor, MTB Guide and Camp Leader.

I've been skiing all my life, since I was around three years old, and I couldn't imagine winter without ski or without the cold days on the white slopes. Mountain biking is the sport that fills in the summer days, when snow is missing. Shredding up and down the trails keeps the mind focused and the muscles fit.

Climbing is what challenges me to overcome my limits and makes me want to become better and better. And, last, but not least, photography is how I try to capture the beauty of nature and people and share it with everyone else.

I am trying to seed my passions in the hearts of youngsters and when I am not guiding I am working with children in MTB, ski, media creation or adventure camps.

I am looking forward towards meeting you so that I can share with you the great beauty of the Romanian mountains and offer you a memorable adventure.
