Viru Bog study trail

Viru Bog study trail

Viru Bog study trail is 1 km off the Tallinn-Narva highway (E20) on the road leading to Loksa. The 3.5 km trail starts at the car park on the Loksa road and ends at the car park on the Kemba road. The shortest walk along the trail (ca 1 km) is from the Loksa road car park to the viewing tower and back again. The bog is a perfect example of this typical Estonian land formation and its flora.
