Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Maribor, take the exit Žalec and then continue in the direction of Velenje. At the main roundabout in Velenje, turn right (towards Dravograd and Slovenj Gradec) and follow the main road to Mislinja and a little further to where the road to the village of Dovže turns right. Park in a suitable place at the crossroads.
b) From Koroška, take the first exit to Slovenj Gradec, then continue to Velenje. A little after Turiška vas, you will come to a crossroads where the road to Dovže turns left. Turn left here and after a few metres park in a suitable parking space at the junction.
Path description:
At the starting point, you will see signs for Grmovškov dom, which direct you to the asphalt road, which will take you to Spodnje and then to Zgornje Dovž in a few minutes. From the Church of St Ulrich in Dovže, continue along the main road for about 100 m, and then the signs will direct you left onto a side road, which will take you almost to the fire station. Before the fire station, turn right and then immediately after the small bridge, turn left onto cart track (direction Pungart), which climbs steeply alongside a small stream. After a few metres leave cart track as the signs for Grmovškov dom direct you right into the forest, through which you climb steeply to the nearby dirt road, which you follow to the right. Walk along the road for only a short distance, as soon after the left-hand bend the markings lead us into the forest again, through which we then climb moderately. The path continues out of the forest onto the slopes of a grassy hillside, which we quickly climb to a nearby farm.
Above the farm, or behind the neatly arranged chapel, step onto the road, which you follow in a gentle ascent to the right. Continue along the road for some time, but it leads us higher to the next farm (the Pušel farm).
From the farm, continue along the road to the first left-hand bend, and here the markings lead us left into the forest, through which we climb moderately along the old tractor track logging trail. Soon we rejoin the road, and we reach it just at a small crossroads. We continue on the ascending road, which passes a local sign (cross) on the left, but we quickly leave it as the markings direct us slightly right on the old cart track. The path quickly returns to the road, but we soon leave it. Continue following the signs, which lead us along the old cart track, which climbs moderately along the forested ridge of Razborca. Higher up, the path leads us out of the forest onto a grassy ridge, which we quickly walk along to the nearby NOB monument.
Behind the monument, the path descends slightly and leads us to the nearby forest road, along which we walk for only a short time, as the markings then direct us slightly to the right to the ascending cart track, which continues to climb moderately along the forested ridge. The way forward takes us along and along the ridge for some time, and we follow the markings carefully at the crossroads so that we do not stray from the right path. A little higher up, we step onto the asphalt road leading from Slovenj Gradec to the Kope ski resort. We follow the road to the right, and it quickly leads us past Luke's home to a large parking lot and above it Grmovškov dom at Kope. After Grmovškov dom continue slightly to the left, where you will quickly reach the Pungart ski lift, and the marked path climbs alongside the lift for some time. A little higher up, the waymarked path crosses the ski lift (cross it carefully when the lift is in operation) and turns slightly to the right, where it leads to the edge of the ski slope. Continue climbing along the edge of the ski slope and continue climbing along the edge of the small wood, straight up. The marked trail, which runs along the edge of the ski slope for the whole of the upper part of the slope, is higher up and takes you just a few steps higher to the top station of the Pungart ski lift. Here, cross the lift route (with caution when the ski slope is in operation) and walk a few 10 steps further to reach the top of the lookout.
