Note that I walked from ALB to MNE.

Nice hike through the fields, the river is down on the left hand side. In the forest, look out for the signpost on the right that says "Rikavac". Obviously I missed it and walked and searched a bit around. Do not follow my GPS track or the markation that tries to go around the river, but go up and follow the marks to Rikavac. That will bring you to the border. From there, I did not see marks, but it is easy to find your way down to the lake.
