Start at Ižanska Road. You can park your car a kilometre and a half further from the crossroads at Črna vas. A smaller parking place is located in front of the crossroads on the left side of the road which leads to the east side of the Marshes. Leave your car at the car park, then cross the road and proceed along the street which is diagonal to Ižanska Road. When you reach the end of the street, turn right and then left to the macadam road. First cross one of the canals, then turn perpendicularly right at the first crossroads, and, when you reach the end of this road, turn left again. From here on you'll walk straightforward for quite some time . Meadows, cultivated areas and patches of the forest of the Marshes exchange on the left and right. Houses of Črna vas, Ljubljana Castle and even the Alps can be seen in the background towards north. Continue straight on for about two kilometres and a half , and then turn left to a well-maintained macadam path. You may see a heron on the left or any of the other rare birds, while on the right, there is the road that connects Lipe and Tomišelj.
The road turns slightly to the left and is equipped with information boards which describe diverse systems of biotic species in this area . You're entering the area of the Ig Marshes , the largest contiguous damp meadows area on the Marshes, full of interesting and rare animal species. The macadam road starts winding a little, and you continue to the right at the last bend towards the village of Brest. When you reach the village, stick to the left and you'll soon get from Brest to Matena . You can visit the Church of St. Hermagoras and Fortunatus, located in the middle of the village of Matena . Just before the end of the village, turn left on the first path, back to the mosaic landscape of the Marshes.
Mosaic of cultural landscape
When you reach the crossroads, turn left towards west, and then immediately right towards north. Narrow and long farm plots are strung on the left and right side of the road. At the end of a quite long flat section, cross the canal and turn left. Continue along the canal or the hedge and then again cross the canal. From here on walk carefully along a busy road for approximately 200 metres. After 200 metres, turn left towards north, cross the canal and continue on the right side of the canal. You'll see Kozler bushes on the left . You can walk to the National Liberation War monument in the forest or you can return to this marshy forest some other time. Turn left from the canal to the first cart track and finish the route near the starting point. The houses, among which you've started the route, are on the right, including Ižanska Road in the background.
