Laiksaare nature study trail (2 km)

Pärnu County, Pärnumaa Recreation Area
FIRE-RISK IN ESTONIAN FORESTS IS EXTREMELY HIGH! It has been extremely dry in Estonia during spring and there is a standing forest fire warning. Therefore, smoking or making fire is not allowed in the forest, even on our camping sites.
The trail runs in the riparian forest of the Rannametsa River, with rich vegetation and versatile terrain. The trail aims to introduce riparian forests, which are rare in Estonia, and characteristic bog plant communities. About halfway through the trail you will arrive at the forest hut, which is an excellent place to rest and listen to the singing of birds.
