NB! The Rannametsa-Tolkuse study trail and observation tower are closed due to reconstruction works. The deadline for the works to be finished is April 2023.
The dunes of Rannametsa have always been a popular place among hikers.
It includes a nature and study trail with information boards in order 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 Rannametsa–Tolkuse nature and study trail is located in Häädemeeste rural municipality by Tallinn–Pärnu–Ikla highway, about 6 km before Häädemeeste. The trail starts by the Rannametsa car park which has an information board to help hikers.
