Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Maribor we go to the exit Žalec, and then we continue driving in the direction Velenje, Mislinja, Slovenj Gradec and Dravograd. When in Dravograd we cross a bridge over the river Drava we turn left and then we park on one of marked parking lots in the center of Dravograd.
From Maribor, we can get to Dravograd also on the road which is winding through the valley of river Drava.
Path description:
From the center of Dravograd we continue on the main road towards Austria, and after few 10 meters we notice signs for Ojstrica, which point us sharply right on ascending and still asphalted road. Only a little further, the marked path splits into two parts. We continue on the right path (left leads on Košenjak over Goriški Vrh), which still continues on the road, and it leads past numerous houses. Few minutes higher we come to a smaller crossroad, where other path on Goriški Vrh branches off to the left (both soon join), and we again continue on the right path. For some time we still continue on an ascending road, after that only few 10 meters after the road makes a sharp right turn, we notice a mountain signpost for Košenjak, which points us left on a steep and at first also quite rough cart track. Further, we are for quite some time ascending on the mentioned cart track, and then it changes into for a short time overgrown footpath, on which we quickly step out of the forest on a panoramic meadow. Through a meadow past the hunting observatory we return into the forest, where we again cross a short overgrown part, and then on a wider cart track we walk to the near road. On the macadam road, we continue to a smaller crossroad, or to the edge of the forest, where blazes point us to the left on a poorly visible path which continues by fenced pasture. By the edge of the pasture we ascend to the main road which leads to the church of St. John the Baptist on Ojstrica, and we follow it to the left, where it leads over a panoramic slope (nice view towards Peca). For some time we continue on the road, and then blazes point us to the right on a cart track, on which in few 10 strides we come out of the forest on a panoramic slope. When we step out of the forest we continue left on a marked path, which immediately returns into a lane of a forest through which we ascend to the next pastures. Here we continue left and in few minutes we ascend to the church of St. John the Baptist on Ojstrica.
From the church, we continue on the asphalt road in the direction towards Košenjak. On the other side of panoramic pastures, we get to the next crossroad, where we continue straight (right St. Urban) on the road which loses an asphalt covering. We then for quite some time continue on a gently sloping road which partly runs through the forest, and partly over panoramic grassy slopes. After approximately 40 minutes of walking from the church of St. John the Baptist, we will on the right side notice a mountain hut Dom na Košenjaku, to which we only have a short ascent over a grassy slope.
From the mountain hut, we walk to the information board on which there is an inscription box and signpost for Košenjak. We continue the ascent in the direction of Košenjak on the path which already after few additional strides goes into the forest. The path ahead is moderately to steeply ascending through mostly dense forest, and higher it brings us to the spot, where a wider cart track (almost road) joins.
And the mentioned cart track we only cross (left - Košenjak gentle path) because blazes point us on a wide path which starts ascending diagonally through the spruce forest. Higher, the path passes out of the forest on a wide clearing at the end of which from the right joins the path from the church of St. Urban and only a little further also the path from Austria. We continue left and gently sloping path, which ahead runs by the border lane we follow all the way to the top of Košenjak, which we reach after few additional strides.
On the way: Sveti Janez Krstnik na Ojstrici (982m), Dom na Košenjaku mountain hut (1169m)
