Koigi study trail (5 km)

Make a fire only in a place prepared and marked for it. To avoid disappointment, please take firewood or barbecue coals with you when traveling by car. Do not leave a burning fire unattended! When using a charcoal grill, pour the coals on the fireplace, not under the forest. Extinguish the fire properly, when leaving.
The trail runs in the largest bog of Saaremaa, where different development stages of the mire can be observed. A popular legend goes that in the bog lake of Koigi a treasure was once buried, and it is guarded by spirits who occasionally reveal themselves to people.
