RMK hiking route Peraküla-Aegviidu-Ähijärve / Aegviidu-Oostriku (107 km)

WARNING! There is the reconstruction work of the boardwalk of the Kakerdaja trail 18.04.- July 2019. We ask for understanding attitude.
This part of the route starts from the yard of Aegviidu Visitor Centre and meanders its first 30 kilometres in the same track with the Oandu-Ikla hiking route. On Matsimäe esker, the trails branch at the hiking hotel "Rabav", where the Ähijärve direction turns south.
The trail goes over the Seli bog to Simisalu, thereafter to Vargamäe and then over the Kodru bog to Järva-Madise. Here the classic nature hiking ends for some time, as the trail winds through Järva county mainly along roads that are mostly lined with fields and grasslands.
Among larger places on the trail there are Järva-Madise, Aravete, Järva-Jaani and Koeru, where hikers can restock their supplies, enjoy civilization or even end or start their journey.
The route runs through Koeru along its main street and then, outside the borough, goes towards the Norra springs area. The trail goes along a gravel road to the western part of the Endla Nature Reserve.
