great camping spot
Sep 2019
We only did a part of the trail. As it is suggested, if going all the way, it is about 10 km. This is one way trail, so you need to add another 10 to get back. but as many trails of Estonia, it is beautiful. we passed awesome campsites. also there is some educational tablets available. and of course, there is a watchtower too. I would recommend you to spend a weekend.
