Description of the trail:

Kalni nature trail stretches along the coast of the River Losis – a nice, shallow, pebbly river. You will see a number of info stands with riddles, also helping to assure that you’re on the right track, as well as information on interest objects – railway embankment once made for the transportation of brown coal, the blue clay bluff and the Airīši secular stone. There are also few resting areas, a fireplace site and a picnic shed. The trail is suitable for both, leisurely walk and hiking – there are some wooden boardwalks, stairs and two quite surprising small bridges, requiring some courage and concentration skills to cross them – but that is exactly what makes this trail special.
