Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Maribor we go to the exit Slovenske Konjice, and then we follow the road towards the mentioned settlement. From Slovenske Konjice we continue driving on a regional road towards Celje, and we follow it to the settlement Stranice, where only few 10 meters after the roundabout we turn left in the village Bukovlje. The road further ascends through Bukovlje, and then it flattens and it brings us in Čretvež, where at the smaller crossroad we continue on the bottom right road. Next follows a short descent, where after the "last" house we turn right. Here we will on the traffic sign notice a caption Stolpnik, which marks the beginning of the path. Because by the starting point, there isn't any appropriate parking space on the road which ascends above the house we drive for approximately 100 meters and then we park there on an appropriate place.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we return to the "last" house in the village, and there caption on the traffic sign points us on a cart track which we follow only few steps. After approximately 10 meters of walking on a wide cart track, we will notice on the right side a footpath which ascends through the forest. Only a little higher by the path first blazes show up, which are then accompanying us during the ascent through the forest, where at the crossings they show the right path. Higher, we step on the forest road and we follow it to the right towards the hunting cottage Štepih - turn-off isn't marked (straight on a footpath Stolpnik over Grofov štant). We continue on the macadam road, on which in approximately 15 minutes of additional walking, we get to the already mentioned hunting cottage.
Near the cottage we notice signs for Stolpnik, which point us to the left on an ascending footpath. The path which is moderately ascending through the forest, quickly brings us to another forest road which we follow to the left, and we walk there only few steps, because then a sign for Stolpnik points us right on a rough cart track. The path ahead starts ascending on a rough cart track, and then avoids it slightly to the right and it starts steeply ascending. This quite steep path, which is mostly ascending through the forest, we follow all the way to the top, and we reach it after approximately 15 minutes of additional walking.
On the way: Lovska koča Štepih (825m)
