Description of the trail:

The trail for those who enjoy botanical walks. The trail stretches up and down the slope through the Abava valley grasslands. It is made up in 2 loops – the short (1,2 km) and the long one (2 km). Here you will see one of the densest and prettiest juniper glades in Latvia. The diverse humidity conditions of the slope and soil difference have facilitated the creation of several grassland types. In the dry calcareous grassland on the top of the slope you may see the mountain clover. Here and at the rich fen you can also spot a number of protected rare plant species.
