Access to starting point:
Over the border crossing Ljubelj we drive to Austria, and then we drive on the main road towards Celovec / Klagenfurt, but only to the settlement Podljubelj / Unterloibl, where we continue right in the direction of store Hofer and police station. Lower, we get to Borovlje / Ferlach, where we cross a railway track, and a little further we go right towards the settlement Bajdiše / Waidisch. After the store Eurospar we turn right and we park on a parking lot by the railway station Borovlje / Ferlach.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we return a little back, where at the west side of store Eurospar we notice yellow mountain signposts for Borovski vrh / Sechter and Grlovec / Ferlacher Horn. At first, we walk on an asphalt road which crosses the railway track, and then past few houses, fields and meadows in a gentle ascent, we walk to Šajdnik / Schaidabauer, where there is a guesthouse.
We continue straight, where we go past the garages of agricultural machinery. The first garage we bypass on the right, and the second on the left side, and then the path passes into the forest, where blazes show up again. The path continues through the forest, where we go past a road reflector and border stone, and a little higher, the path splits.
We choose the path 659 in the direction of Grlovec and we still continue an ascent through the forest. Next follows crossing of a macadam road, and then the path is becoming increasingly steep and few minutes it is very steep. After the steep part the path flattens, and then crosses a worse road. After the road we go from the cart track left, where we ascend through an overgrown clearing, and higher we go for some time into the forest, where we once again cross the road. When a little higher we again reach the road, we continue there to the right hairpin turn, where on the outer side of the turn we will notice the continuation of a marked path. The path ahead ascends by the edge of the next clearing, and when we reach the end of the road, we descend there to the right for few steps, and then we go sharply to the left on a footpath which again becomes steeper. Next follows an ascent in longer hairpin turns, where we several times cross a wide overgrown clearing, where the footpath on several spots because of the overgrowth or fallen trees is harder passable. Such ascent, which offers also nice views lasts a little longer than 1 hour.
When we leave the clearing, we leave also a wide growing area of raspberry bushes and wild strawberries, and the path further from the northern gradually passes on the western slopes of Borovski vrh, where we cross steep slopes. Next follows a diagonal ascent, which offers occasional views towards the west, and the path higher reaches the ridge, which connects Borovski vrh and Grlovec.
On the ridge, where from the right unnoticeably joins also abandoned and in the past secured path Ho-Tschi-Minh Pfad (the mentioned footpath is abandoned, fixed safety gear what's left of them are damaged, ladders fell apart, and the passage on erosion damaged path is deadly dangerous), we leave the path towards Grlovec and we go sharply left and we continue walking on the ridge.
The footpath on the ridge is at first moderately, and higher steeply ascending. A little below the summit, we step out of the forest, and on a very steep path we quickly ascend on a panoramic peak.
