Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Maribor we go to the exit Žalec, and then we continue driving in the direction Velenje. In the main roundabout in Velenje we go right and we continue driving towards Slovenj Gradec and Dravograd. A little before Slovenj Gradec, more precisely at Turiška vas we turn right and on a local road we drive into the center of Turiška vas. Here we continue on the main road which turns to the right, and then through a bridge over the river Mislinja brings us into Brda. After the bridge, we continue right, and then the road passes into the forest, where it starts gradually ascending. In the part of the path, where the road runs through the forest, we park on an appropriate place by the road (higher there aren't any appropriate parking spots).
B) From Koroška at first we drive in Slovenj Gradec, and then we continue driving towards Velenje. A little after Slovenj Gradec, more precisely at Turiška vas we turn left and on a local road we drive to the center of Turiška vas. Here we continue on the main road which turns to the right, and then through a bridge over the river Mislinja brings us into Brda. After the bridge, we continue right, and then the road passes into the forest, where it starts gradually ascending. In the part of the path, where the road runs through the forest, we park on an appropriate place by the road (higher there aren't any appropriate parking spots).
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the road by which we've parked, and after few minutes it brings us to a smaller crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of homesteads Merkač, Orter and Pegan. When a little further we get to a smaller hamlet with few houses, we continue on the upper right road, by which only a little higher we notice the first blazes (signs of European footpath E6 Baltic - Adriatic). Here we continue right on a cart track which at first ascends by the edge of the forest and then passes on fields and meadows. Through a meadow we walk on a worse cart track, and the path higher brings us to a forest road which we only cross, because we continue the ascent on a marked footpath. The orientation ahead is much easier, because we are accompanied by quite frequent and well visible blazes. A little higher we once again cross a macadam road, and the path passes into a dense forest, which ends at the hunting observatory. Next follows an ascent through a panoramic grassy meadow, and the path quickly brings us to a lonely farm where we step on the road. We continue on the road, and after few minutes it brings us to a marked crossroad at the chapel.
Here we continue straight (right - Sveta Magdalena 5 minutes) and for a short time, we still continue on the road, and then we go left on a marked footpath. The path quickly passes out of the forest on a meadow, through which we in few minutes ascend to a smaller hamlet. Above the hamlet we again leave the road and we continue the ascent on a cart track which is moderately ascending through the forest. Higher, we on the right side bypass the chapel of St. Štefan, and the path brings us to the next hamlet at homestead Pridgar.
We continue on a footpath which returns into the forest and only a little higher crosses the asphalt road which leads from Slovenj Gradec towards Kope. The path for a short time continues through the forest and then it brings us to the next homestead.
From the homestead near of which there are situated a smaller chapel and NOB monument, we return into the forest, and for quite some time, we continue on a relatively well-marked cart track. Considerably higher we step on a wider macadam road which leads towards Partisan cottage (in same direction continues also marked footpath E6), and we continue straight upwards on a wider, but unmarked cart track. Further, we are ascending on a relatively wide cart track which has some side branches, and we all the time stick to the one, which is somehow the "main" and mostly sticks to the same direction. Higher the cart track which mostly runs among bushes of blueberries, narrows a little and gradually turns a little to the right. A little further also the forest gets thinner, and the path a little higher finally comes out of the forest on the more and more panoramic grassy slopes of Velika Kopa.
Ahead we walk to the bottom station of a ski lift, and from there we continue on a marked path, which in 10 minutes of additional walking brings us on a panoramic peak.
