Cabins for hikers, an observation tower and a boardwalk attract many nature lovers to the Meenikunno bog. This is a beautiful recreation area. While walking down the boardwalk, you can see the most common bog plants: leather leaf, bog rosemary, crowberry, Marsh Labrador tea, and tussock cottongrass; on the edge of the bog, dwarf birches can also be found. There are also a number of different species of peat moss of various colours. The bravest ones can try bog water with an interesting taste from the overgrown ditch near the edge of the bog.

NB! From Suur Soojärve towards the Päikseloojangu forest cabin, the boardwalk is partly deteriorated. Walking on the boardwalk is at one's own risk.
