Access to the starting point:
a) First drive to Ravne na Koroškem, then continue to Mežica. After Prevalje, you will reach the small settlement of Poljana, where you will park in the parking lot opposite the Church of St. John the Baptist. Next to the parking lot there is a memorial to the National Liberation Day and a Kocka bar.
b) From Črna na Koroškem we drive towards Mežica and further towards Ravne na Koroškem. In the village of Poljana, just after the crossroads where the road to Austria turns left, turn left in front of the Church of St. John the Baptist into the parking lot next to the NOB memorial and the Kocka bar.
c) From the route of Austria, drive into Slovenia via Border crossing Holmec and after a few kilometres turn left at the crossroads towards Ravenna na Koroškem. Just after the crossroads, where you join the Mežica - Prevalje road, turn left in front of the Church of St. John the Baptist into the parking lot by the NOB memorial and the Kocka bar.
Path description:
From the starting point, carefully cross the fairly busy road Prevalje - Mežica, then at the junction of two macadam roads continue along the left-hand side, which continues behind the Church of St. John the Baptist. After the church, turn right once more and then descend gently to the bridge over the Mež River. On the other side of the bridge, go left and then you will see a signpost on a tree pointing you right into the forest. After a short climb on cart track, the path splits and we take the right path in the direction of Volinjak (slightly left Leše churches and Volinjak past the churches mentioned above).
From the crossroads onwards, we climb crosswise to the right, and the cart track, which we follow, is marked with yellow arrows at the crossroads. The higher cart track makes some longer serpentines and then leads to the hay meadows under the Stovčnik farm. Continue to the farm, then above it, at the sign, cross the macadam road and continue into the forest, where we are also guided by yellow arrows on the trees. There is a climb through the forest, and we continue to follow the yellow arrows, which take us higher up to reach a nondescript ridge, where the path past the Leška churches joins us on the left.
We continue to the right and, passing the statue of St Mary, in a few minutes we reach the top of Volinjak, from which we get some views.
From Volinjak, continue south-westwards and begin a relatively steep descent through the forest. After a few minutes, the path lays down and leads us out of the forest onto a meadow, which we cross in a gentle descent. A little further on, we reach a macadam road, which we cross, and then continue along a gently ascending road, which leads us past a large chapel. After a few 10 steps, the marked path to Mežica branches off to the right, and we continue along the dirt road towards the Andrej homestead. The way forward takes us past the Andrej homestead, and a few 10 metres further on, the road branches slightly to the left to cart track, by which there is an old sluice gate.
Continue along the above-mentioned cart track, and at the first crossroads go right. Just a little further on, you reach the next crossroads, where you continue along the left-hand cart track. Follow cart track for a few minutes and when cart track is laid down in a small clearing, bear right and in a few steps reach Andrejev vrh. Poljana - Volinjak 1:35, Volinjak - Andrejev vrh 35 minutes.
