Description of the trail:
Rudbārži forest park is notable with its virgin land and old trees. It is the former manor park and its overall area is 9,6 ha. There are both, local and 57 introduced species. Here you shall see a remarkable oak alley, as well as the beech, fir, European Larch, Weymouth pine and Douglas pine stands. The natural forest biotope provides a good nesting area for woodpeckers and owls. There are 121 bird species at the park and its surroundings. In the past, Baron Fon Firks family burial ground had been located here, being destroyed during the Soviet time, yet the impressive ruins can still be visited at the park.
Starting the trail at the Rudbārži Manor be careful when crossing the road and walking along the roadside.
