Access to starting point:
A) We drive to Črna na Koroškem, and then we continue driving in the direction of Koprivna and valley Topla. Further, we drive by the river Meža, where the path leads us past the turn-off to Podpeca, and from the main road we turn right at the crossroad, where signs for valley Topla (Dolina Tople) point us to the right. Next follows driving through the mentioned valley, where few paths on Peca branches off to the right, and on the road we drive to the homestead Končnik, or also a little further to a smaller crossroad by NOB monument (monument is right above the road), where we park at the appropriate place.
B) We drive to Solčava, and then we follow the signs for Črna na Koroškem. Next follows few kilometers of ascent, and then also some descent, so that we reach valley of river Meža. When we reach the mentioned valley, from the crossroad at the road sign 4 km, we turn left into a valley Topla. Next follows driving through the mentioned valley, where few paths on Peca branches off to the right, and on the road we drive to the homestead Končnik, or also a little further to a smaller crossroad by NOB monument (monument is right above the road), where we park at the appropriate place.
Path description:
From the crossroad by NOB monument we continue on the left road (road which leads straight at the nearby house ends, or changes into a cart track), by which we notice a sign, that we will continue on the forest road. The road quickly takes us on the other side of the stream Topla, where it splits.
We continue on the right road in the direction of Koprivna (left road leads to the hunting cottage), which is ascending through the forest and after few minutes brings us to the left hairpin turn, where there is also a smaller crossroad. To the left continues driving road towards Koprivna, and to avoid walking on the road, we go on the right road, from which already after few steps we go left on partly grassy cart track. After a shorter moderate ascent, the path brings us in the forest, where we join a wider cart track, and we follow it to the left. Further, the cart track has few smaller crossings, where we are choosing wider paths. Quite steep cart track near the wooden religious symbol (cross), returns on the before mentioned driving road which leads towards Koprivna.
We follow the mentioned road to the right, after that on some sort of expansion, where there is a snow gauge, we continue left, on a cart track which leads towards Šoparjev vrh. Cart track quickly passes into a dense forest and then we follow unmarked path to the nearby Šoparjev vrh, from which a nice view opens up towards Peca and Topla.
From Šoparjev vrh, where there is a larger clearing and to where lead few wider cart tracks, we continue towards the south to southeast, where we at first walk on a cart track by the edge of the forest, and the cart track quickly passes into the forest. Through the forest the path continues mostly on a forested ridge and the direction most of the time remains the same. At first the path is quite gentle, occasionally it even descends a little, and in the second part, the path starts at first lightly, and in the last part a little steeper ascending. At few crossings we follow the ridge path, on which we then get to a panoramic, but still a little vegetated Čofatijev vrh.
The starting point - Šoparjev vrh 1:15, Šoparjev vrh - Čofatijev vrh 35 minutes.
