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 ascends gently and after only 10 metres you reach a marked crossroads, where you continue along the right-hand road in the direction of Stovčnik and Prapar (take the road slightly to the left to reach Mežica and also Volinjak). Just a little further on, the road forks again, and this time we take the left-hand road, which bypasses the Prapar farm (also Praper on some signs) on the upper side. Continue along the road leading to the Stovčnik farm, and we follow it first under the route of the power line, and then through the forest. Once in the forest, turn left onto cart track, along which you will soon see yellow arrows (there are usually hay bales at the point where you leave the road). The way ahead is cart track, which you follow at crossroads in the direction of the yellow lines or arrows. Higher up, cart track turns into a steep footpath which soon leads to a ridge, and on the ridge we are joined in a few minutes by the path past the Stovčnik farm.
The way forward leads us past the statue of St Mary, and then quickly up to a partially viewable peak.
