About
The "President's hiking trail" is a 10 km-long forest trail in Laane-Viru County that starts in Aegviidu and winds its way through Nelijarve to Janeda. In winter it plays host to the ever more popular "President's hike", in which Arnold Ruutel, President of Estonia from 2001-2006, also takes part. Did you know...? - The trail was named after former Presidents of Estonia, Konstantin Pats and Arnold Ruutel, who came here often. - The first President of the Republic of Estonia, Konstantin Pats, was the man behind the Nelijarve tourism centre: he came up with the idea and funded its construction. He also founded Janeda Agricultural High School. - Arnold Ruutel graduated Janeda School with the class of '49.

So many times, so many seasons but still I’m going back to the trails. The atmosphere is good, and you can take the trails by foot or bike or skiing. Also if you’re a hiker, you have a great place to stay overnight there. And eventually, Aegviidu is the Estonian hiking capital.

That was very good Sunday evening and we just eat home grilled sausages then find out that we need a walk. And we find the President's Hiking Trail start at Aegviidu and finish on Jäneda. I can recommend this trail for all who love wonderful natural views and beautiful places. And most important that not so hard and professional, just 10 km walk on the marked trail and every seasons is good. You must see that.

By the way, if you have nothing to in Tallinn and you want out for a day, then that is very good for a day. You can start in the morning on the railway station Balti Jaam and travel by train 50 min to Aegviidu. Then to trail "Presidendi matkarada". After 4,5 km you find the "Nelijärve Puhkekeskus", there you can swim on the lake and eat on the coffee. And back to trail. At the end you can again eat in Jäneda pub "Musta täku tall". If you do want more walk then again railway station in Jäneda and back to Tallinn. You never forgot that walk end Estonian nature.

It's a good spot for hiking in the summer. Especially if you arrive to Aegviidu by train, you can walk this nature trail to Jäneda. It is well maintained. Is also used as a skiing track in the winter.
