Teringi study trail (4.5 km)

Viljandi County, Sakala Recreation Area
The campfire site and study trail are under reconstruction and cannot be used.
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 4.5 km loop trail is ideal for people who are not wearing special hiking clothes. The boardwalk, covered with anti-slip mesh, and the safe wood-chip path take the visitor across several bog islands. Information boards along the trail give an ample overview of wild animals and bog communities. Starting from July it is possible to try cloudberries, crowberries (Empetrum nigrum), bilberries, bog bilberries, cowberries and cranberries along the trail. After a healthy picnic you can go for a refreshing swim in the brown-water Lake Alatsi.
