Palumägede hiking trail (1 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.
The kilometre-long hiking trail with many ups and downs starts from the second Palumägede parking area and offers versatility for visitors enjoying a lakeside holiday.
