Access to starting point:
Over the border crossing Ljubelj we drive to Austria, and then we drive on the main road towards Celovec / Klagenfurt, but only to the settlement Podljubelj / Unterloibl, where we continue right in the direction of store Hofer and police station. Lower, we get to Borovlje / Ferlach, where we cross a railway track, and a little further we go right towards the settlement Bajdiše / Waidisch. The path ahead leads us past the store Eurospar, and we follow the main road to the settlement Dolje / Doliach (settlement is located in Borovlje), where we turn left towards the nearby cemetery, to which we get to after few 100 meters of additional driving and there we park on a large parking lot.
Path description:
From the cemetery we return on the road to the church in Dolje, where we notice the first yellow mountain signposts for Macna / Matzen, which point us on a side road which continues towards the east. The road at last houses ends, and we continue on a marked footpath, which lightly descends to a stream Bajdiška Borovnica / Waidischbach, and then it short time continues parallel with the stream. A little lower over a longer wooden bridge we cross the stream and on the other side, we follow the blazes to a macadam road which we follow to the left. The road quickly brings us to a smaller crossroad, where we go sharply right, and a little after the nearby gate we go left on a marked footpath, which brings us to another road. We once again go right, and then blazes lead us on a forest footpath, which is at first moderately and higher steeply ascending, and meanwhile it crosses few cart tracks. After a smaller source we also cross a fence, and then the path flattens and a little further we get to the former farm Korenjak, which is situated in the village Rute / Rauth.
From the farm, where there still stands a well maintained house from the year 1490, we continue on the macadam road which a little higher brings us to partly abandoned holiday cottage, after which the path goes from the road left. After a short ascent, we quickly join the other road which we follow to the right, and right below us we notice a smaller lake.
We walk on the road to the nearby crossroad, where we only cross a little wider macadam road, and then we continue the ascent on the mountain path, which higher few more times crosses the macadam road. At the altitude approximately 1120 meters we once again step on the road, where there are chapel and a cross, few steps to the left, at the small cottage, where there is emergency bivouac, from a viewpoint a nice view opens up towards the west, where we see Karawanks, valley Drautal, in good visibility, the view reaches all the way to Julian and Gailtal Alps.
At the chapel, we again leave the road which a little further we cross for the last time. A little higher we reach the cart track which we follow to the left, and it quickly ends, and further we are ascending on a steep path which leads through the forest. Higher, we for some time reach northeastern ridge of Macna, and from which path soon withdraws a little to the right. When few minutes higher, we again reach the ridge, past a bigger chapel we quickly get to the church of St. Ana, from which a beautiful view opens up also towards the east.
Behind the church of St. Ana we continue slightly right (slightly left - path which bypasses the peak of Macna) and we ascend through the forest on the ridge of Macna. The path ahead continues on a partly vegetated ridge and at first, it is only gently ascending. Next a short steep ascent follows, where from the right side of the ridge we pass on the left side, and then we for some time cross slopes, but we soon return on the ridge, which we reach on some sort of notch. Here a short secured, but not very difficult path on a side secondary peak of Macna branches off to the right, from which a nice view opens up. And the marked path which continues towards Macna doesn't turn on the mentioned secondary peak, but it continues slightly left, where we at first ascend with the help of steel cables, and then the path flattens and it turns left on steep slopes. Through the steep part we also get help from a steel cable, and the path at the end of the crossing turns right and by the steel cable starts very steeply ascending. The steep part is short, because the path quickly brings us to the cross on the northern secondary peak of Macna. Here the path turns to the left and on a slightly vegetated ridge quickly brings us on the highest and unvegetated peak of Macna.
