This bog is one of the largest bogs in Kõrvemaa: about 1,000 hectares. The picturesque high bog with many bog pools is made unique thanks to the fact that the bog is located at two different heights.
In spring and autumn, thousands of waterfowl stop in the bog pools. Lake Kakerdaja lies in the middle of the bog.
The 2.6 ha Hiiesaare marsh island with a species-rich stand, which was probably an ancient place of shelter and sacrifice, is located three-quarters of a kilometre east of Lake Kakerdaja. 4 kilometres of the nature trail is covered with a boardwalk.
In 2020, reflectors were installed on the Kalajärve part of Kakerdaja trail (3.4 km). We recommend bringing a flashlight.
Take Perila–Jäneda highway (road No. 11125) from Vetla and turn right before the 23 km post (before the sign for Söesauna turismitalu). Drive 1.8 km along the gravel road until a sign for a campfire site points to the left. In 200 metres, you will reach the campfire site car park where the starting point of the trail is located. You can also start the hike from Noku car park (drive 3.2 km on the gravel road until you reach the Noku campfire site car park).
