③ Downhill on Cozla hill
Mountain bike & Downhill
Piatra-Neamț has one of the most beautiful and spectacular downhill trails in the country. The route is technical with short straight sections, bends with low visibility (due to the rich vegetation). It includes new sections and elements, slower segments and is a very fun and amateur-friendly flow course. The route is approximately 2 km long, and access is by cable car.
It's good to know that the "Tare ca Piatra" downhill competition is organized on this route. The line designed by the organizers is fully adapted to the natural conditions of the mountain (difference in level and type of soil), the route thus testing the endurance and skills of the riders on sandy terrain and high temperatures, factors that increase its speed.
