Koigi study trail (5 km)

The trail to the northwest of Pitkjärv is made of iron plates, we ask you to be careful about it, especially at the joints of the plates!
During the time of a risk of a forest fire in Estonia: • You can make fire only in designated places. • You can make fire only with a wind up to 5 m/s. • Watch out your fire!
The trail runs in the largest bog of Saaremaa, where different development stages of the mire can be observed. A popular legend goes that in the bog lake of Koigi a treasure was once buried, and it is guarded by spirits who occasionally reveal themselves to people.
