Path description:
From the beginning of the settlement, we diagonally ascend on the asphalt road, from which beautiful views opening up, and in the middle of the settlement, we continue sharply right in the direction of the cycling path LO40. The path ahead leads us past few more houses, and after the settlement, the road becomes a macadam and passes into the forest. Next follows a steeper ascent through the forest, and at few smaller crossroads, we continue on a wider road. Higher, the road leads us past some sort of picnic area, where there are two religious symbols, and a little further we get to the spot, where western path on Vovar branches off to the right.
We continue on the road and we start ascending diagonally on the northern slopes of Vovar, and we follow the road to the spot, where it starts descending.
At the spot, where the road reaches the highest point, the cart track branches off to the right, by which there are signs for Vovar. We continue on the cart track which is ascending on the northern to northeastern ridge of Vovar, and higher we cross also few cart tracks, which were mostly made after the strong winds in the year 2008. Higher, we continue on a well-beaten forest path, which we follow all the way to the top, where there are few benches, an inscription box with an inscription book and a stamp and a wish bell.
