Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Ilirska Bistrica, and then we continue driving towards the border crossing Jelšane. After the settlement Jelšane we leave the main road towards Croatia and we continue left in the direction of the settlement Novokračine. Next follows a little more than 1.5 km of driving on an asphalted and ascending road, and then we get to a smaller mountain pass, where we notice signs for Sveta Katarina. From here we continue on the road which starts descending, and we are driving there good 500 more meters, after that the forest road branches off to the right. Here as well, we go still straight, after that few 10 meters ahead, at the beginning of the left turn, we park on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
If we've parked at the beginning of the left turn, we return on the road a little back, and then we continue left (direction south to southwest) on a macadam road, on which we quickly get to the nearby bee house. Little further, the road splits into three parts, and we continue on the middle, which then leads us by the right edge of a larger clearing. Road quickly returns in the forest, through which is gently to moderately ascending. A little higher another road branches off slightly to the left, and we continue slightly right, on the road which is gradually turning more and more to the right. Further, the road leads us on a little more rocky terrain, from where for some time a view opens up a little. A quite gentle path then turns even more to the right and at the cross (11th station of Way of the Cross) joins the path from Jelšane (in the description starting point Branček).
We continue on a little wider road which a little further comes out of the forest. Next follows a little less steep and partly panoramic path, which quickly brings us to the hunting cottage.
From the hunting cottage only a short ascent follows on the road or on nearby footpath and we already reach the chapel of St. Katarina, which is situated on a panoramic summit.
Description and pictures refer to a condition in the year 2014 (September).
