RMK Rannametsa-Tolkuse Nature and Study Trail

The dunes in Rannametsa have always been a popular place among hikers. Trails and information boards have been built here to protect the delicate nature and still introduce the nature of Luitemaa to visitors.
The 2.2 km circular trail, parts of which are a boardwalk, passes through the pine forest on the dunes and Tolkuse Fen, leading to the largest swamp pool of the fen (approx. 96 x 210 m). An 18 metre viewing tower has been established on the top of Tornimägi, the highest dune in Estonia, which takes you more than 50 metres above sea level so you can see as far as 50 km away and even spot Kihnu Island.
