Description
Waypoints (0)

Dunika bog trail is one of the longest bog boardwalk trails in Europe – it is 5km long, though point-to-point type, which implies that you should either arrive with 2 cars, leaving one at the end of the trail, or hike the trail twice – out &back, hiking the total distance of 10km and slowly enjoying the fantastic bog atmosphere twice. The small pine-trees in the bog are in reality already more than 100 years old. The trail ends with the Lukne white or European Hornbeam stands, which is also more than 100 years old and is the only one in Latvia. The boardwalk through the Hornbeam stands has just been renovated. Yet, there are some obstacles in the central part of the trail in the bog due to the poor condition of the boardwalk (broken, rotten planks), therefore some caution is advised. You may use the same route on your way back or take the gravel road which goes around the bog.

Great hike and beautiful views. Wooden walkways are quite rotten and if there's high groundwater some parts of the trail may be flooded.

It is beautifull trail with nice views. There is no difference in high in the trail. So it is easier walking than the description says.
