Lõunalaagri hiking trail (1.8 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.
Beautiful nature, varied landscape and the events of the past from the time of the first Republic of Estonia offer excitement here for both history and nature lovers. In 1926, the shooting range of the South Camp and a military camp with barracks, residential houses, an ambulance and casinos were built in this area. You can still see the ruins the buildings in some places. The length of the trail is 1.8 km.
