Majakivi-Pikanõmme nature trail's observation tower (ca 3000 m from the parking)

Harju County, Lahemaa National Park
Majakivi-Pikanõmme nature trail is 7 km long and number eight-shaped, starts and ends at the parking lot on the Hara-Juminda road. If you take the left branch from the parking lot, it is about 3 km to the tower and about 4 km if you take the right branch. To go to the tower, you should park in the parking lot at the beginning of the trail, because the forest road leading from Aabla to the Pikanõmme dunes is narrow, with large holes and often very wet and soft. The observation tower is located on the Pikanõmme dunes at the highest point of the Juminda peninsula, 33 m above sea level. From the 24.5 m high tower you can enjoy the view of the entire peninsula. In the east you can see Hara Bay, in the west Kolga Bay with Suur- and Väike-Malusi, Rammu and other islets of Kolga Bay. Tallinn can be seen across the sea in the background.
