Access to starting point:
A) We drive to Kočevje, and then we continue driving in the direction of Delnice. In Livold we leave the main road towards Croatia and we continue left in the direction of Črnomelj and Vinica. Further, we drive through the settlement Mozelj, Rajndol, Knežja Lipa, Brezovica pri Predgradu, where the road turns sharply to the right, Čeplje, Zagozdac and Jelenja vas to the settlement Predgrad, where at the church of St. Sebastjan we park on a parking lot at the information boards.
B) From Vinica or Črnomelj we drive to Stari trg ob Kolpi, from there we continue driving in the direction of Kočevje, and we drive only to Predgrad, where we park on a parking lot in front of the church of St. Sebastjan.
Path description:
Signs for Kozice from the parking lot point us on the road, where we short time walk in the direction of Kočevje, and after few 10 strides after the nearby house we continue left downwards on a side road, by which there are signs for Kozice. The descent soon ends, and the road changes into a cart track, and to a marked crossing we continue without large changes in altitude.
At the crossing, we leave the cart track and we continue right upwards towards Kozice (straight - Dol), where we start steeply ascending through the forest. Through the forest, we follow the signs of forest path Kozice, which is marked with oak leaf. Higher we for some time continue on a cart track, after the abyss on Graščica, which is 23 meters deep, the cart track narrows into a mountain path. Next follows some more of an occasionally steep ascent through the forest and then occasional views start opening up, and the path splits. Both left and right path in few minutes bring us to RTV transmitter on the top of Kozice, where there is an inscription box.
And for a nice view it is worthed to continue left in the direction of viewpoint, to which we get to after a little less than 5 minutes of a descent.
Description and pictures refer to a condition in August 2020.
