Description of the trail:

Nice, short loop-type wooden trail along the Pilsupe river through the pine forest up to the 20 m high Purciems White Dune. Few simple viewing platforms on the way opening a spectacular view on the white sand outcrops and the Pilsupe river banks. The dune holds more than 6000-year-old artifacts of human material culture. Few ups and downs, but easy to walk.
