Lemmjõe forest study trail (5.8 km)

Viljandi County, Soomaa National Park
The left branch of the trail on the Raudna river side is difficult to cross. You can get to the Lemmjõe dam along the right branch of the Lemmjõe.
The trail goes along the bank of the Raudna River up to the place where the Raudna and Lemmjõgi rivers join. Next the trail runs along the bank of the Lemmjõgi River and ends at Kuusekäära again. The “keelemets” is an often flooded floodplain forest by the Lemmjõgi River. Traces of beaver activity can be seen near the study trail.
