The trail runs along the banks of Tõramaa and Raudna rivers, which are decorated with ancient oaks and lindens. The path leads across a meadow, where protected plants such as meadow geranium (glagiolus imbrecatus) and Siberian iris (iris sibirica) grow. It is a dirt track and can be muddy in rainy weather. In winter the trail is often under thick snow. The trail passes the place where Tõramaa and Raudna rivers meet, there is also a camp site. A 7-branched spruce grows there. The beginning and end of the trail is by the road. You have to allow 2-3 hours to complete the trail. I would recommend starting the trail from the end of the Raudna river.

It takes approximately 3 hours to complete the trail. This trail is not particularly suitable for people who have difficulty walking, small children as well. The trail is sure to appeal to wild nature lovers. On this journey, it is possible to see and feel the nature and its uniqueness in different seasons.
