Tahu study trail (1,4 km)

Lääne County, Silma Nature Reserve
Be especially careful when using the lookout tower, as the tower is depreciated. Use of the lookout tower is your own responsibility.
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 marked trail begins at the old Tahu manor park and leads to the seaside where there is an observation tower. From the tower you get a beautiful view of the coastal grassland.
