Selli-Sillaotsa study trail (4.7 km)

Make a fire only in a place prepared and marked for it. The need for firewood in our campsites is very high during the summer, therefore firewood may be out. To avoid disappointment, please take firewood or barbecue coals with you when traveling by car. Do not leave a burning fire unattended! When using a charcoal grill, pour the coals on the fireplace, not under the forest. Extinguish the fire properly, when leaving.
The trail starts in a pine forest at the edge of a mire. There the Suuretüki observation tower offers an excellent view on the Laeva mire. The trail continues along a boardwalk across the Laeva mire, which is well known for its good cranberry sites.
The trail is for walking only!
