Selgise cycling trail (30 km)

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 length and terrain of the 30 km trail makes it suitable for moderate training or leisurely enjoying of nature. The trail with its ups and downs runs along winding forest paths and straight forest rides, passing through different forest communities. The best recreation sites along the trail are Kukemetsa forest hut and Kärgandi campfire site, which is ca 500 m off the trail.
