Access to the starting point:
a) From the Maribor - Dravograd road, between the Fala HPP and the Ožbalt HPP, turn left towards Lovrenc na Pohorju (from the route of Dravograd turn right). On the other side of the Drava, start climbing along Radoljna, and at the marked crossroads go left towards Činžat and Rušy. There is some more ascent, and on the preval, where you can see the red mountain direction signs, the route described above begins. There are no parking places at the crossroads, so park a little further away in a suitable place.
b) Drive to Ruše, then follow the road towards Lovrenec na Pohorju. In the village Činžat you will arrive at a preval, where you will see red mountain direction signs, where the described route starts. There are no parking spaces at the crossroads, so park a little further away in a suitable place.
Path description:
From the starting point, take the road marked Činžat and Koča na Klopnem vrhu. At first, walk along the asphalt road, which leads you past a few houses, and at the crossroads follow the markings and signs for Koča na Klopni vrh. Above the village, the asphalt ends and the road passes into the valley of the Lampreht stream, along which we continue our ascent. The road then becomes asphalt and turns sharp right at 728 metres above sea level. There is a cross-country climb, gradually moving away from the stream. A few crossroads follow higher up, and we continue left at all of them. There is a moderate climb to the left and we reach the Sveti Križ chapel, from which we get some views of the surrounding countryside.
After the chapel, we pass the Lampreht homestead on the upper side, and then there is an easy ascent, which is made by crossing the slopes of the Lampreht summit for a longer distance. When the crossing is over, we return to the Lampreht stream, which we cross over a bridge, and just after the bridge, the path from Ruš via Zgornji Smolnik joins us from the left.
Continue straight ahead along the wider road towards the Cottage on Klopni vrh, and at the next crossroads go straight ahead in the same direction (Areh and Šumik on the left). There is some more climbing along the stream and the path leads to Fišer's sawmill, where you go to the other side of the stream again.
A few 10 m further on from the stream, leave the road and continue to the left, following the signs for Kočo na Klopni vrh, where you first go over a fence and then past a private cottage into the forest, where you continue your ascent along cart track. Cart track has a few forks higher up, where you follow the signs, but mainly you climb through the forest. When you reach a grazing fence higher up, a marked track leads you to the right of the fence. Continue along the fence for a few minutes and then return to the macadam road where you join the trail from Lovrenec na Pohorju.
When you reach the road, if you continue to the left, you will reach the hut at Klopni vrh in a few 10 steps, and we continue straight across the road on the path in the direction of Klopni vrh (to the right Lovrenc na Pohorju). The path ahead takes you along the cart track, which is mostly a moderate climb through the forest. Follow the path, which at a few small crossroads is marked, all the way to the nearby summit, which is reached after about 15 minutes from the point where we left the road.
