From Rožňava hike on a dirt road above the Slovnaft petrol station to the forest and then follow along the forest road to the Miklos and Berta tunnel with an ascent to the saddle below Rákoš and descending pathway to the Volárska, Vyšný Johan tunnel and to the others.
ATTENTION: The path for is not well marked in for travel in the opposite direction.

Z Rožňavy poľnou cestou nad benzinovou stanicou Slovnaft do lesa smer popod Sitárka po žltej a potom po lesnej ceste až štôlni Miklos a Berta s výstupom do sedla pod Rákošom a zostupným chodníkom k štôlni Volárska, Vyšný Johan a k ďalším s ukončením v mieste štartu.
2020.02.08. Pozor chodník pre reverzný pohyb nie je značený, sťažená orientácia, jedine podľa turistickej navigácie, škoda že na tento spôsob chôdze značkári nemysleli.
