Abula-Kalasma study trail (11,2 km)

From 26.06 to 01.09, the Abula-Merise road is under repair.
Due to the repair, access to the Abula - Kalasma study trail and the Kalasma, Karjäri and Abula camping areas may have temporary waiting breaks and/or diversions.
We recommend going to the Kalasma camping area and study trail via Mustjala - Rahtla village.
A wonderful and exciting trail along the seaside. Especially nice in spring. The limestone pine forest and coastal cliffs provide a habitat for many different plant and animal species.
The trail starts at Abula campsite and is marked with yellow ribbons.
