Access to starting point:
We drive into the center of Dravograd (to here from Maribor through the valley Dravska dolina or from Velenje through Slovenj Gradec), where signs for Ojstrica point us on the road which after 6.5 km brings us to the church of St. John the Baptist on Ojstrica. Only few 10 meters after the church we come to a crossroad, where we continue sharply right in the direction of Sveti Urban. At the next crossroads we follow the road towards the mentioned church, until we get to a gate near of which we park on a parking lot by the road.
Path description:
From the gate we continue the ascent on the road which is moderately ascending and after few minutes it brings us to a crossroad, where we continue right (unmarked). The road ahead in light ascent, crosses slopes towards the east. After approximately half an hour of walking, the road makes a sharp left turn and brings us out of the forest on a larger clearing, in the middle of which stands the church of St. Urban. From the church, we continue forward towards the west, where at the cross we notice the blazes. The path which is further gently ascending by the border line between Slovenia and Austria quickly brings us on 1367 meters high peak. The path from the top descends on a slightly rocky slope, and then it brings us to a smaller wooden bivouac on the Austrian side of the path (locked). The further path which still runs on the border ridge is slightly ascending on more or less vegetated slope. Only rarely a view opens up a little on Austrian hills. And a lonely forest path eventually joins the path from the farm Lonhtar. And a little further we come to a crossing, where from the left joins the normal path on Košenjak. Here we continue straight (right - Koralpe) and we follow the path to the top which we reach in few ten strides of additional walking.
On the way: Sveti Urban (nad Kozjim Vrhom) (1329m)
