Access to starting point:
A) Over one of the border crossings with Austria (Korensko sedlo, Karawanks Tunnel, mountain pass Ljubelj, mountain pass Jezerski vrh, mountain pass Pavličev vrh) we drive to Austria, and then we continue driving on the so-called south highway towards Gradec / Graz. On the mentioned highway we drive to the settlement Wolfsberg, where we leave the highway, and when we get to a roundabout with an old or regional road we continue driving "straight" in the direction of the ski slope Koralpe. Ahead we drive through settlements St. Stefan, Maildorf and Rieding, and we follow the ascending road to a large parking lot at ski center Koralpe.
B) Over the border crossing Holmec or Vič we drive to Austria, and then we continue driving towards the settlement Wolfsberg, where signs for Koralpe point us to the right. Ahead we drive through settlements St. Stefan, Maildorf and Rieding, and we follow the ascending road to a large parking lot at ski center Koralpe.
Path description:
At the end of the parking lot signs for Koralpenhaus point us on a footpath which ascends on the left edge of ski track (while the ski slope operates the passage is forbidden). A moderately steep path after few minutes of ascent brings us to an unmarked crossing, where we continue on the left gentle track. The path which then for some time runs on a ski track, higher brings us on an asphalt road. Here we continue the ascent right on an ascending road which with increasingly beautiful views quickly brings us to the mountain hut.
From Koralpenhaus we continue on the road which after two sharp turns soon brings us to two radar stations on the top. The path bypasses the radars on the right side, and then the road ends. Next follows only few steps of ascent to a cross, which we see on the left side.
On the way: Koralpenhaus mountain hut (Koralpe) (1966m)
Trip can be extended to: Seespitz (Koralpe) ( 20 min)
