Path description:
From the starting point, we carefully cross quite busy road Prevalje - Mežica, and then at the crossroad of two macadam roads we continue on the left, which continues behind the church of St. John the Baptist. Behind the church, we once again continue right, and then we lightly descend to the bridge over the river Meža. On the other side of the bridge we go left, after that on a tree we notice a signpost, which points us right in the forest. After a short ascent on a cart track path splits, and we choose the slightly left path in the direction of Leše churches (right Volinjak).
We continue on a cart track which is diagonally ascending towards the left, and at the crossings we follow the yellow signs. Higher the forest ends and in front of us, we already notice Leše churches, to which we have only a short walk.
After churches we continue right on a footpath which higher passes into the forest, and after a shorter ascent joins the macadam road. On the road, we lightly ascend and already after few 10 meters we get to a marked crossroad, where we continue on a slightly left road in the direction of Volinjak and the path "skrivnostni svet Žal žen" (right Prapar and Stovčnik). The path ahead at first continues through the forest and then past a watering-place and by ample pasture. A little higher, the road brings us to a smaller hamlet at the farm Hermanko, where on one of the buildings we notice a caption Volinjak, which pointing right, but we still continue on the road, and we leave it at the few minutes distant crossroad, by which there is a bigger built chapel.
From the crossroad, we continue right, on the path in the direction of Volinjak, where the path at first leads through the meadow, and then it gradually passes into the forest. Through the forest, we follow the yellow arrows or lines, and on a quite steep path in few minutes of additional walking, we reach the peak of Volinjak, on which there is an inscription box.
