From Gasthof Rausch you go along a path to the "St. Gregorweg" up to the church on the hill which can already be seen from the parking area. The church is dedicated to St. Gregory. From the church you have a beautiful view of the farming village Unterferlach, which is part of the mixed-language area in Carinthia and therefore also known with its Slovenian name "Spodnje Borovlje". From there you continue along the path to the forest. There ends the paved track and we continue onto a narrow path, which was the road for wagons with horses. For tractors the road is already too narrow. As soon as you're in the woods, you can spot the starting point on the left. The trail will be temporarily a bit more steep until you come to a plateau. At this point the narrow trail leads to a wider forest road, which you must follow to the right. After approximately 30 meters, you can see a narrow path, which leads from the forest road leads into the woods. Follow this path to the east. Here you cross a forest road. At the end of the patho you come back onto a forest road, which you have to follow to the right. This forest road, which is part of the Way of St. James, you have to follow up until you get to the St. Christof´Church. The church was restored in painstaking efforts by many volunteers from the surrounding villages. From the church follow the same way back to the junction where a sign "Petelin" is attached. From now on, follow the yellow signs until you reach the small hill called "Petelin". From this vantage point you can enjoy a breathtaking view into a small valley and see the Wörthersee. After a break we return and go down the hill. At the first fork in the road you go left and at the second fork in the road also turn left. Now you're back on the forest road, which is also the Way of St. James. At the next junction you go right up to the gate, which was already used during the ascent and goes this downhill towards the former hunting lodge. From there it goes downhill again towards Unterferlach.
