This 5.2 km trail winds around Lake Õrsava offering beautiful views of the wilderness. The trail has several bridges with stairs over small streams. The trail introduces the activities of Northern Camp (Petseri Northern Camp, established in 1926, was a camp of the Defence Forces of the Republic of Estonia).

The trail begins and ends at the stadium of Värska Upper Secondary School that also has an excellent children's playground. In addition, the trail can be accessed from several rest stops of the State Forest Management Centre.

Lovely lake views in Setomaa can be enjoyed in the nearby Podmotsa village nearby that is one of the 21 places in Southern Estonia worth discovering which are marked by a yellow National Geographic window; if you are interested in culture and nature, a visit is highly recommended.
