Rutu campfire site

Viljandi County, Sakala Recreation Area
This campfire site with tent camping area is perfect for hikers for whom the vicinity of water is not a must. The site is at a comfortable distance from the main road, and a safe place to stay overnight. Even if Rutu hill, does not offer a panoramic view at the moment, the hiker’s feet will most certainly feel the height of this spot as he ascends the forest paths lined by huge trees.
