Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Ravne na Koroškem, and then we continue driving towards Mežica. After Prevalje we will get to a smaller settlement Poljana, where we park on a parking lot opposite of the church of St. John the Baptist. By the parking lot is situated NOB monument and Kocka bar.
B) From Črna na Koroškem we drive towards Mežica and forward towards Ravne na Koroškem. In the settlement Poljana, only a little after the crossroad, where a road towards Austria branches off to the left, before the church of St. John the Baptist we turn left on a parking lot by NOB monument and by Kocka bar.
C) From the direction Austria through the border crossing Holmec we drive in Slovenia, and after few kilometers at the crossroad we turn left towards Ravne na Koroškem. Only a little after the crossroad, where we join the road Mežica - Prevalje before the church of St. John the Baptist we turn left on a parking lot by NOB monument and by Kocka bar.
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 right path in the direction of Volinjak (slightly left Leše churches and Volinjak past the mentioned churches).
From the crossing ahead we are ascending diagonally towards the right, cart track on which we walk is at the crossings marked with yellow arrows. Higher, the cart track makes some longer zig-zags, and then it brings us on a panoramic meadow below the farm Stovčnik. We continue to the farm, after that above it at the religious symbol we cross a macadam road and we continue in the forest, where also yellow arrows on the trees point us to. Next follows an ascent through the forest, and we still follow the yellow arrows, with the help of which we higher reach the indistinct ridge, where from the left joins the path past Leše churches.
We continue right and past the statue of Holy Mary, in few minutes we get to the summit of Volinjak, from which a view opens up a little.
