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 a slight left in the route Leše churches (right Volinjak).
Continue on cart track, which ascends transversely to the left, following the yellow markers at the crossroads. Higher up, the forest ends and you can see Leše churches just a short walk away.
After the churches, turn right onto the footpath, which turns into a forest higher up and then, after a short climb, joins the macadam road. The road climbs gently and after only 10 metres you reach a marked crossroads, where you continue along a slightly left-hand road in the direction of Volinjak and the path into the mysterious world of the Sorrows of Women (Prapar and Stovčnik on the right). The way ahead continues first through the forest, then past a watering hole and alongside an expansive pasture. A little higher up, the road leads us to a small hamlet near the Hermanko farm, where we see the inscription Volinjak on one of the buildings, and we continue along the road, arriving at a crossroads a few minutes away, at which there is a larger brick chapel.
From the crossroads, continue straight ahead, on the road that continues to the left of the chapel (slightly to the right is the road leading to Mežica, to the sharp right is the footpath to Volinjak). After a few 10 paces, a marked path branches off to the right downhill to Mežica, 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 will reach the next crossroads, where you continue along the left-hand cart track. Follow cart track for a few more minutes, and when cart track is laid down in a small clearing, bear right and in a few steps reach Andrejev vrh. Poljana - Leše churches 45 minutes, Leše churches - Andrejev vrh 1:05.
