Kabli – Häädemeeste – Laiksaare – Ristiküla – Kilingi-Nõmme – Tali – Massiaru – Kabli
This route is the shorter and easier version of route 363. In the beginning, the route follows the old Pärnu-Riga highway that runs along the coastline. You will pass by small fishing villages and churches, the seaside Kabli village with a beautiful beach and a number of fire and campsites. In May and October the area is a great place for bird watching.
After Häädemeeste, the trail continues away from the seashore. First, head in the direction of Ristiküla on the Valga – Pärnu highway, which is a section of regular highway, so you will have to watch out for traffic. Follow the main highway to Kilingi-Nõmme which is a great place for a lunch brake.
Continuing your ride from Kilingi-Nõmme, there are several beautiful views in the Saarde area right at the beginning of the route. The first 18 km section to Tali manor is a good asphalt-covered road and it's rather calm in terms of traffic. From Tali, head to the gravel roads leading to the Nigula Nature Reserve and the Ruunasoo bog area. There are observation towers, nature trails, and there's a good chance you will see animals and birds in the area. In general, the gravel road is quite easy to ride by bike. On occasion there are too many loose rocks on the road.
A paved road (6.5 km) leads from Massiaru to the Pärnu-Ikla highway, and from there a 2.7 km gravel road to Kabli (beach road). The length of the route is 90 km and gravel roads make up about 20 of those kilometres.
The route is quite attractive as a hiking trail in itself, but it can also be easily combined with other routes for those coming from Valga who would like to visit the lovely coast before reaching Pärnu. This section could also be used by hikers from Latvia who are interested in visiting nature reserves along the trail.
It is best to start the trip from Kabli, Häädemeeste or Kilingi-Nõmmest.
