Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Ilirska Bistrica, and then we continue driving towards the border crossing Jelšane. After the settlement Jelšane we leave the main road towards Croatia and we continue left in the direction of the settlement Novokračine. Next follows a little more than 1.5 km of driving on an asphalted and ascending road, and then we get to a smaller mountain pass, where we notice signs for Sveta Katarina, and on the left side of the road also a suitable place for parking.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we at first cross the road, and then we go on at first still asphalted road in the direction of Sveta Katarina. At the gate, the asphalt ends, and only few steps further we get to the first Station of the cross. Further, we are ascending on the forest road, by which we are accompanied by the already mentioned Stations of the Cross. Between the tenth and the eleventh station from the right also an unmarked path from Novokračine joins (in the description starting point Rjavi bg), and we continue slightly left, on the road which a little further comes out of the forest. Next follows a little less steep and partly panoramic path, which quickly brings us to the hunting cottage.
From the hunting cottage only a short ascent follows on the road or on nearby footpath and we already reach the chapel of St. Katarina, which is situated on a panoramic summit.
Description and pictures refer to a condition in the year 2014 (September).
