The Tilleoru nature trail starts in Tilleorg valley and runs for 4.5 km along the area's floodplain before passing through coniferous forests and eventually reaching Merioone spring.

A nature reserve, situated in the headwaters of the Ahja River, on the stretch between Tille and the Möksi; the area's windmill was established in 1957. Founded to preserve the landscape’s integrity, the reserve protects the forests growing on the banks of the Ahja River. With the forests' area covering the nearby valleys, hills and on valley brinks – the entire area is a real jewel of nature.

Did you know...?: People originally believed that Merioone spring reached the sea; this is how it got its name.

Getting around the forest

The trail is good, having different ups and downs to make it more interesting. It also has a nice spring near the sandstone cliff which has amazing water to drink. The ending of the trail is next to...



Nice hiking trail with alternating landscape

This hiking trail offers a moderate amount of physical activity! Alternating landscape, boardwalks in some of the wetter areas, stairs, several resting areas. Nice walk about 1...1,5 hrs.
