beautiful and varied walk
Oct 2019
beautiful and varied walk. The place itself is easy to find, however the direction to walk is not indicated at the beginning (parking place at the chapel). Once found the indication is perfect. Various pathwalks are possible, through the different vegetation, very varied, partly also over stick and stone. Again and again beautiful photo motives. But the way is not too exhausting.

Combination of seaside, forest, many boulders and the wooden houses of Käsmu
Jun 2019 • Solo
The trail is circular, flat and only 4,5 kilometres. I guess it can be done by most people.
I liked the trail. First you walk along the coast, then through the forest and finally along the beautiful wooden villas of Käsmu. Many information boards (Estonian and English) on the trail.

Rock hopping

The Käsmu trail is an easy hike, you can´t get lost. There is beautiful old forest and seside on the path. If it´s not the sea bird´s nesting period (there are signs that tell), you can stray off to from the Vana Jüri kivid (the erratic stone blocks) towards Kuradisaar island. You can reach it by a narrow and rocky neck of land. It is the most beautiful walk. Kuradisaar is natral reserve, so be sure not to leave any litter or disturb the nature.

Käsmu forests will blow you away
Apr 2018 • Family
Gorgeous stony paths covered in moss. Pick your own blueberries and mushrooms in autumn.
Clear paths, that are easy to pass even with a baby-pram.

Nice but..
Jun 2018 • Couples
This is a nice and pleasant location. However it is heavily promoted and does not merit that special attention. There are many other equally interesting locations in the area

Trail through woods and a grand field of boulders covered in moss and lichen!
Sep 2017 • Couples
The trail starts at the furthest Northern point of the small village Kasmu - exactly where the main street ends. There is a small parking lot at the beginning of the trail and the hike itslef goes in a circle so it is convenient to arrive by car. At first the trail leads North to the cape of Old Juri where a small island and the first grand rocks can be spotted. Don't miss the big pile of "lucky rocks" near the seaside and leave one of your own!
Further on the trail takes a turn and stretches into the woods. A few steps into the forest and the boulder field reveals itself - it is truly a very nice view as the boulders are of various sizes and covered with a thick layer of numerous plant species (don't step on them as it may damage the species). Some of the boulders are even split into two, perhaps due to a lightning.
Around the middle of the trail you will come upon Matsikivi - one of the largest boulders in the vicinity.
The trail will roll back to civilization in around the middle of village. You will pass by a nice small chapel and the maritime museum and then head back North to the start of the trail.

! Note the leaflets along the road and enjoy the exciting and humurous descriptions of various things that you will spot on the trail.

Best for those who do not have a chance to enjoy seaside on everyday basis
Jul 2017 • Family
Kasmu is very easy to reach - just type in the name and drive till the road ends. Should there be no parking spots left, you can park a hundred or so meters back or by the church - it doesn't really matter, you will probably be making full circle anyway. If you are in a hurry, you can settle for the seaside with impressive stones - just make sure you come no earlier than mid-July (some areas are restricted before). After enjoying the seaside, the second part of the loop takes you through the forest - the stones are there as well, with a variety of mosses. This part is rather wild, so a trolley is out of the question.

A lovely walk
Jul 2017 • Solo
This trail is relatively short, about 5 km. The first part is on the shore, the second part in the forest. Well signed (green marks on trees). Information posts with English explanation.
