Õisu hiking trail (2.5 km)

Viljandi County, Sakala Recreation Area
The hiking trail runs along the banks of the beautiful Vidva stream, north of the centre of Õisu manor. At the spacious parking area an information board leads the hikers through a gate to the trail, which is varied and demands little physical effort. The trail is covered with wood chips and on the steep banks of the stream one can find railings, stairs and view platforms. Under the shelter on the other side of the stream visitors can enjoy their take-along meal. The rapid stream offers a scenic view and the relaxing burbling sound of water all the year round. An attentive observer will also find the contours of the water-carrying virgin figure on one of the outcrop walls. Õisu river valley has often been compared to the Taevaskoda outcrops in Põlva County.
