Otepää Nature Centre (0 km) – Otepää (2 km) – Vana-Otepää (5 km) – Neeruti (10.8 km) – Leigo farm (12 km) – Lutike (14.2 km) – Mesilinnu Saloon (19 km) – Nõuni (21.5 km) – Otepää (30.1 km) – Otepää Nature Centre (32 km)
Start your trip at the Otepää Nature Centre, climbing the pathway up the hills to reach Otepää. Pass the city centre, keep going past the famous church and head to Vana-Otepää. There is a fairly hilly road up to Leigo farm which is quite challenging to climb on the gravel road. Leigo Tourist Farm is definitely a sight to see: a determined owner has bent nature to his will. The lake music concerts here are legendary.
From Leigo, head to Lutike village, and from there to Tartu-Otepää highway. Mesilinnu Saloon is no longer in its former glory and therefore you should use the lovely forest road to ride to Nõuni, which will be on the left soon after Lutike. There is a beautiful lake in Nõuni. From there you have to ride to Otepää on the highway, where, from time to time, the traffic can get rather busy.
The route is moderately difficult, there are about 7 km of gravel roads and 4 km of cycling paths when riding to the Otepää Nature Centre. If you start and finish in Otepää, the length of the route is 28 km.
You can start the trip either at the Otepää Nature Centre or, if you are arriving by car, in the parking lot by Lake Pühajärv or Tehvandi Ski Centre. You can also consider starting at Leigo Farm.
