Combination of seaside, forest, many boulders and the wooden houses of Käsmu

The trail starts at the furthest Northern point of the small village Kasmu - exactly where the main street ends. There is a small parking lot at the beginning of the trail and the hike itslef goes in a circle so it is convenient to arrive by car. At first the trail leads North to the cape of Old Juri where a small island and the first grand rocks can be spotted. Don't miss the big pile of "lucky rocks" near the seaside and leave one of your own!
Further on the trail takes a turn and stretches into the woods. A few steps into the forest and the boulder field reveals itself - it is truly a very nice view as the boulders are of various sizes and covered with a thick layer of numerous plant species (don't step on them as it may damage the species). Some of the boulders are even split into two, perhaps due to a lightning.
Around the middle of the trail you will come upon Matsikivi - one of the largest boulders in the vicinity.
The trail will roll back to civilization in around the middle of village. You will pass by a nice small chapel and the maritime museum and then head back North to the start of the trail.

! Note the leaflets along the road and enjoy the exciting and humurous descriptions of various things that you will spot on the trail.

Kasmu is very easy to reach - just type in the name and drive till the road ends. Should there be no parking spots left, you can park a hundred or so meters back or by the church - it doesn't really matter, you will probably be making full circle anyway. If you are in a hurry, you can settle for the seaside with impressive stones - just make sure you come no earlier than mid-July (some areas are restricted before). After enjoying the seaside, the second part of the loop takes you through the forest - the stones are there as well, with a variety of mosses. This part is rather wild, so a trolley is out of the question.

This trail is relatively short, about 5 km. The first part is on the shore, the second part in the forest. Well signed (green marks on trees). Information posts with English explanation.
