Käsmu nature and cultural history trail

Käsmu nature trail looks at the development of the Käsmu peninsula and Estonia’s biggest natural accumulation of rocks. The trail begins in the car park next to the chapel and is 4.2 km long. The trail is well marked with signs, and the trees along the trail have white stripes painted on their trunks.
Käsmu is one of the country’s most beautiful seaside villages, and the local museum provides an excellent overview of its maritime history.
