Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Dravograd, and then we continue driving towards Austria. Further, we drive over the border crossing Vič, and we follow the main road to the beginning of the settlement Labot / Lavamünd, where signs for Graz and Ivnik / Eibiswald point us to the right on an ascending road. We then follow nicely maintained and wide Alpine road to mountain pass Koglereck (also Soboth), where we turn left towards the settlement Ettendorf. Immediately after the crossroad, we will notice on the left side a larger macadam parking lot, where we leave the car.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we return to the main road, we cross it and we continue in the direction of the peak Hühnerkogel (slo. Košenjak). The path ahead runs on a wide gentle cart track which on both side surrounded by ample "plantation" of blueberries. Dense lane of blueberries soon ends, and further still a gently sloping path brings us into a lane of bushes and thin forest, where the footpath becomes a little more overgrown. At the crossings, we follow the blazes, and occasionally moderately steep path, from which a nice view is opening up towards Golica / Koralpe, brings us into the forest, where the cart track again widens. When the cart track widens, from the left joins also a marked path from the settlement Soboth, and we continue in an already known direction towards Košenjak. A little further, we get to a wider macadam road which we reach right at the marked crossroad.
We continue on a narrower macadam road in the direction of Košenjak and mountain hut Roßhütte, to the latter we have only 3 minutes of walking.
From the mountain hut, where the road ends and by which there is a control stamp, we continue in the direction of Košenjak / Hühnerkogel, on the path which through a shorter meadow leads into the forest. Next follows a moderate ascent through the forest and then the path brings us on a gentle grassy slope, from which a nice view opens up on Golica / Koralpe. The path then returns into the forest and it brings us to the national border, where we join a better beaten path, which comes from Slovenian side. Here we continue right and by the edge of the forest in 2 minutes of additional walking, we ascend to the summit of Košenjak.
On the way: Roßhütte (1438m)
