Study trail of Lilli nature house

An information board at the Lilli nature house directs those interested to the study trail of the Lilli nature house. Taking an old lane, you reach a forest path which takes you to a sorb grove that the locals also know as the ‘energy grove’. On the trail, you can admire rare lung lichen, rest on a stone covered in sorb roots and enjoy to the stillness of the forest. One branch of the trail will take you to Virapuu boulder that is shaped like a bun.
When taking the trail, make sure you go to the nature house first and ask for a bag with a map of the trail, a magnifier and a glossary of runes.
