Huitberg hiking trail (3 km)

Lääne County, Vormsi Landscape Reserve
One of the most captivating places on the Vormsi Island is the Huitberg limestone outcrop in the middle of a spruce forest, in the centre of the island. This more than 400 million years old coral reef smoothed by glacial abrasion has formed from calcareous exoskeletons of animals living in the shallow tropical seas during the Ordovician. On the outcrop, where it is not covered with moss, you can admire fossils or rare protected ferns growing in limestone cavities.
The trail starts by Suuremõisa and is marked with signposts and an information board.
