Driving fr Ocna Sugatag - Hunedoara, is short cut good?

Hi, any maramures experts or residents know which route below is better driving from Ocna Sugatag to Hunedoara? If staying at Ocna area, should we drive west to Baia Mare city and back to Galgau or can we take short cut straight south to Galgau via Targu Lapus? How's the road be like from Cavnic - Targu Lapus - Galgau? Thanks.

Route1 via Cavnic & Targu Lapus, then pass Galgau to highway 1C.

Route2 via Baia Mare on highway 1C to Galgau, then to Gherla.

I think the road via Baia Mare is in better condition than the other option.

You need to contact Mattjhis he used to use the Targu Lapus road a lot and would know the answer to this one.

Hi, the road Cavnic-Stramba Baiut-Targu Lapus-Galgau and on to Dej is the fastest and nicest one. It is probably half an hour faster, and the road condition is ok-good this time a year.

Just make sure you don't miss the turn towards Stramba Baiut (about 500 metres after you passed the ski slopes).

Have a good trip,

Matthijs
