The route starts in Râu Bărbat and it goes to Hobiţa (you can also start it in Pui village). From here you will follow the tourist signs to Stâna din Râu. The road climbs slowly, and about two kilometres far from the village we will meet Bărbat River. From here the road climbs along the river, on the left or on the right side up to Stâna din Râu. At the end of the road we will meet several info boards with Retezat National Park and the road continues on a wooden bridge over the river Bărbat. Right after the bridge the road
becomes rough and it climbs steeply to the sheepfold and from there a little higher up on a stony plateau. To the right and down from here it is the mountain shelter Stâna din Râu. To get back you use the same route, but in reverse.
