RMK Rannametsa-Tolkuse Nature and Study Trail

The dunes of Rannametsa have always been a popular place among hikers.
A nature and study trail, as well as information boards have been built there to better introduce the Luitemaa Nature Reserve to visitors.
The circular trail, which partly runs on a boardwalk, passes through the pine forest on the dunes and Tolkuse bog and leads to the largest bog-pool of the bog. The trail includes several points of interest, bog lakes, and rest spots.

Next to the trail, there is an 18-metre-high observation tower on the highest dune in Estonia, Tornimägi, which provides a magnificent view of Tolkuse bog and Pärnu Bay.
The nature trail is a perfect location for a family hike and for enjoying nature.
