Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Ravne na Koroškem, and then we continue driving towards Mežica. After Prevalje we will get to a smaller settlement Poljana, where we park on a parking lot opposite of the church of St. John the Baptist. By the parking lot is situated NOB monument and Kocka bar.
B) From Črna na Koroškem we drive towards Mežica and forward towards Ravne na Koroškem. In the settlement Poljana, only a little after the crossroad, where a road towards Austria branches off to the left, before the church of St. John the Baptist we turn left on a parking lot by NOB monument and by Kocka bar.
C) From the direction Austria through the border crossing Holmec we drive in Slovenia, and after few kilometers at the crossroad we turn left towards Ravne na Koroškem. Only a little after the crossroad, where we join the road Mežica - Prevalje before the church of St. John the Baptist we turn left on a parking lot by NOB monument and by Kocka bar.
Path description:
From the starting point, we carefully cross quite busy road Prevalje - Mežica, and then at the crossroad of two macadam roads we continue on the left, which continues behind the church of St. John the Baptist. Behind the church, we once again continue right, and then we lightly descend to the bridge over the river Meža. On the other side of the bridge we go left, after that on a tree we notice a signpost, which points us right in the forest. After a short ascent on a cart track path splits, and we choose the slightly left path in the direction of Leše churches (right Volinjak).
We continue on a cart track which is diagonally ascending towards the left, and at the crossings we follow the yellow signs. Higher the forest ends and in front of us, we already notice Leše churches, to which we have only a short walk.
After churches we continue right on a footpath which higher passes into the forest, and after a shorter ascent joins the macadam road. On the road, we lightly ascend and already after few 10 meters we get to a marked crossroad, where we continue on the right road in the direction of Stovčnik and Prapar (on a slightly left road we get to Mežica and also on Volinjak). Only a little further, the road once again splits, this time we choose the left road which on the upper side bypasses farm Prapar (on some signs also Praper). Further, we walk on the road which leads towards the farm Stovčnik, and we walk there at first below the route of a power line, and then through the forest. When we are in the forest, we continue left on a cart track, by which we soon notice yellow arrows (by the spot where we leave the road, there are usually bales of hay). The path ahead leads us on a cart track which at the crossings we follow in the direction of yellow lines or arrows. Higher, the cart track changes into a steep footpath which soon brings us on a ridge and on the ridge in few minutes also the path past the farm Stovčnik joins.
The path ahead leads us also past the statue of Holy Mary, and then we quickly ascend on a partly panoramic peak.
Poljana - Leše churches 45 minutes, Leše churches - Volinjak 40 minutes.
