Marimetsa hiking trail (9 km)

Lääne County, Marimetsa Nature Reserve
The 9 km out-and-back trail offers a good opportunity to get acquainted with different habitats—the surface road at the start of the trail runs along a forest divide, across a meadow and through a spruce forest along the banks of the Marimetsa stream. The boardwalk at the end of the trail leads you across the fen, raised bog and transitional mire to bog pools.
