Further, we drive past homesteads Kajzar and Helbel, at the latter we continue on the right road, and then we go also past homesteads Prelank where we go left, and Korenk which we bypass on the left side.

Border crossing Remšnik is located few 100 meters ahead.

Path description:
From the starting point, we go on a footpath which from the road branches off by the sign behind the national border. The path leads us towards the west and it is ascending through the forest and on a national border. A little further a view opens up a little on the Slovenian side, higher when the path brings us out of the forest, also on the Austrian side. Next follows a shorter steeper ascent by the upper part a panoramic meadow and we already get to the church of St. Pankracij.
From the church, we still continue towards the west, and then past the chapel we quickly get to a marked crossing, from which we continue right in the direction of the mountain hut Kapunerhütte (left Sveti Urban and Slovenian path on Kapunar). The path ahead runs on the Austrian side of the national border and leads us on a gentle cart track. A little further from the right joins one of the paths from Ivnik / Eibiswald, and we continue towards the mountain hut Kapunerhütte and mountain pass Radeljski prelaz. The path ahead leads us past a lonely house (a holiday cottage), and then at the smaller crossroad we choose the upper left road, on which also blazes point us to. From the road, we already after few steps go right on a marked path, which for some time leads through the forest, and at the crossings we follow the blazes. After crossing a grazing fence we get to a larger panoramic pasture, from which a nice view opens up towards Golica and surrounding mountains. In the middle of the pasture, the path leads also past the nearby house, and then we gradually return in the forest. In the forest, we reach the national border and we get to a crossing, where left downwards one of the paths branches off towards the church of St. Urban, and we go straight and we continue walking on the Austrian side of the ridge. Behind the crossing we go also past a religious symbol and we continue past numerous bird feeders. Further path entirely returns on the Austrian side and then leads us also past the farm Hubenlenz, from where again a nice view opens up. Next follows some of walking through the forest, and at the border stone XII 102, we again get to the national border. Here we get very close to path which leads on the Slovenian side and leads past Sveti Urban, and after the nearby cross we go again away from the national border. When the path further for some time comes out of the forest, we go past the farm Waldgregor, behind which we continue slightly left on a narrower road. Doesn't last long, when we return to the national border, and next to it on the Slovenian side runs also Slovenian path. Few minutes we walk together with Slovenian path, and then we already get to the hunting cross, where we leave both marked paths and we continue on the national border, where to the top of Kapunar we follow the followable path.
