Kõrgessaare orchids' study trail (100 m)

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 self-guided study trail offers a chance to learn about local orchids in a short time. Accessible also for tourists travelling by tour buses. The educational flower bed is primarily intended for learning about different species of the orchid family, but it also provides opportunities for outdoor study for schoolchildren and biology enthusiasts.
In the middle of Kõrgessaare small town, next to the parking area.
The boardwalk trail takes 15 minutes to complete.
