Description of the trail:

The boulder of Šaukliai is distinguished by the unique tundra-like landscape, unusual in Lithuania. A nature path with an observation tower and information pointers introduces with the unique flora and fauna of this area. The boulder of Šaukliai is one of the largest boulders in Lithuania and is part of the Šaukliai Landscape Reserve. The Reserve spans a total area of 79 ha and was formed in the last glacial period. It is also known as the Lithuanian tundra, in which, in its primeval position, the rocks of 0,3-1 m or even 3 m in diameter are fairly evenly distributed. Very lush, high, reaching even 6 m, junipers of various forms grow between them, forming a full brushwood. Part of the boulder area is fenced, because of the mouflons band grazing there for nature management purposes. People in wheelchairs and parents with baby-strollers are suggested to contact the trail administrator in advance of the visit to access the trail because of the fence.
