Access to starting point:
A) We drive to Radenci, and then we continue driving towards Gederovci and Kuzma. From the roundabout in Gederovci we continue in the direction of Kuzma, after the settlement Pertoča we go right towards Grad. When we get to Grad, at the store Spar we continue straight and we drive a little further to the parish church of St. Mary of the Assumption, where we park on the parking lot in front of the church.
B) From Murska Sobota we drive towards Gederovci, and in Černelavci we go right in the direction of Grad. Further, we drive through few more settlements, where at the crossroads we continue in the direction of Grad. When we already get to Grad, past the store Spar we drive to the parish church in Grad, by which we park on a parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot at the church, we walk to the main road and we continue by the road towards the southwest. When we walk on a sidewalk, the path leads us past the football field, and when we get to a crossroad below store Spar, we continue straight in the direction of Dolnji Slaveči (left - castle Grad and one of the paths on Kripta).
Only few 10 strides ahead, in front of the gas station Maxen, blazes point us to the left, on a side road which at a larger decaying building turns right. Next follows a walk between the field on the left and a decaying structure on the right, where at the smaller gate a poorly beaten and often overgrown northern path on Kripta branches off to the left, and we still continue on a wider cart track which turns slightly to the right, and still leads us by the field. The path ahead leads us between the forest on the left and stream on the right, and when we get to a marked crossing, we continue left upwards in the direction of the path Graščakova pot (signpost is from the opposite direction).
Next follows an ascent on a narrower older cart track, and at the smaller crossing, we go right as signpost of the path Graščakova pot points us to. Next follows few minutes of a steeper ascent through the forest and we get to the top of Kripta.
From Kripta we continue straight in the direction of the path Graščakova pot and we quickly step out of the forest. Few minutes the path leads us with nice views, which reach all the way to Austria, where Stradner Kogel stands out, and when we return into the forest we continue left. Next follows some descent on the macadam road, and when at the hairpin turn we reach an asphalt road, we continue the descent there. A short time we are still descending, and then signs for path Graščakova pot point us to the right on a cart track which ascends diagonally towards the left. Higher, the cart track flattens and it quickly brings us to the castle Grad in Goričko.
