The object is located in the forest, on the slope of Magura Małastowska. The easiest way to get to it is the path marked with black and white squares from the top of Magura Małastowska. The path starts at the dividing of the green and blue trails. First, it passes a circle located around 100 m from the separation of military cemetery routes No. 58, and then after about 20 minutes it reaches the cemetery No. 59. The cemetery has a rectangular shape with an area of 163 m, surrounded by a stone wall about one meter high on three sides and a stone triangular wall ended with a stone cross. In its area there are 17 mass graves and one single gravestone born in Lazne Podehrady in 1888 by Czech Emil from Obereigner. The whole cemetery is completely renovated and cleared of bushes, trees and weeds. In 2007-2008, the cemetery was renovated by the Magurycz Association on the initiative of the Friends of Nowicy Association. The original HV stone posts that mark the boundaries of the cemetery plot have also survived.
