From the roundabout after OMV gas station we turn to the first exit right towards Slovenska Bistrica, towards Slovenska Bistrica we drive to the turn-off of the road to the left towards Oplotnica and Osankarica. We turn towards Oplotnica and on the road we drive to the center of the settlement, where we park on one of the many parking lots in the settlement.

Soon after Slovenska Bistrica we turn right in the direction of Oplotnica, and then we drive to the center of Oplotnica, where we park on one of the many parking lots in the settlement.
Path description:
From the center of the settlement, we go on the path in the direction of Osankarica, lake Črno jezero and Tri Kralji and we at first walk on a sidewalk past Mercator store, primary school Pohorje battalion Oplotnica to pizzeria Salama, where we go left and then immediately right, so that we bypass the pizzeria on the right side.
The path ahead starts visibly ascending on a narrower asphalt road which leads us past occasional houses, and when we already get to the settlement Lačna Gora, a nice view opens up also towards Oplotnica and surrounding hills.
Higher, at the cross, signs for lake Črno jezero point us right, where we go also past the last house, behind which we continue the ascent on a macadam road, and from there we soon go left into the forest on a marked footpath. Through the forest, we ascend steeper, a little higher we cross a macadam road which we recently left and then we in a moderate ascent get to the church of St. Mohor and Fortunat.
At the church, we return to the road, and there we continue towards the north. The road quickly changes into a cart track which at first leads through the forest and then through a panoramic grassy part, where for some time it descend a little.
When in the village Kebelj we reach an asphalt road, we cross it diagonally towards the right, and then we go left in the direction of the lake Črno jezero, the nearby house we bypass on the right side. Next follows few minutes of panoramic ascent on a grassy slope, and when for few steps we ge to the end of the asphalt road, from the right joins also the path with the starting point at the cemetery in the village Kebelj.
We continue straight on a marked cart track which before the entrance into the forest turns right and continues by the edge of the forest, and from the mentioned cart track, the blazes point us to the left on a narrow cart track which continues through the forest. Through the forest, we follow the blazes, and when the path turns a little to the right, after a shorter crossing from the right joins also the other path from the settlement Kebelj.
Here we go left and we quickly get to the ruins of Kebelj castle or Castle Zajec.
