The Pae karst area spreads out over two hectares of land covering a limestone layer rich in fossils. Where the alvars and bog meet there is a terrace that varies in height from one to two metres. Here you can see collapsed funnels up to one metre wide and 1.5 metres deep. Other points of interest in the area include open hollows, fissures, caves and a limestone firing kiln.

Features and amenities

Getting there

The Pae karst area is situated just off the Rapla-Juuru road. We recommend driving here from the centre of Rapla: continue 4 km along Viljandi Highway before turning left where you see the sign ‘Juuru 12 km’. A sign beside the Pae bus stop points off to the right to the karst area, which is a further 1.2 km.
