The Jēči Mill Trail is located in the North Vidzeme Biosphere Reserve. Hiking along the trail will reveal the diversity of nature, wildness, as well as allow you to explore and encourage watching. The trail winds through fields, forests, pastures, quiet and wild places. Here you will see a number of unusual natural and cultural history formations, such as Jēči bowl stone, one of the largest stone pile constructions in Latvia – Pugu stone piles, Garo hill, Kraujiņi giant stone, grass/low bog, boreal forest, beaver paradise and veteran trees. The route also crosses one of the most species-rich pasture meadows, where you can watch wild horses and taur cows in their daily lives.
When walking along the trail, we encourage to wear waterproof shoes. In some places, sticks or a balance support branch will be useful, which are usually placed at the information stand at the beginning of the trail. In early spring and rainy weather, hiking along the nature trail can be a bit of a challenge to overcome obstacles (swampy, slippery places, uphill and downhill in some places up to 6 m). One of the sections of the trail is marked with a blue-white marking (Jēči – Pugas, 2 km), the other section with a red-white marking (Jēči – Pugas – Grantiņi, 7 km). It is possible to combine both sections of the route so that the route is circular (Jēči-Pugas-Jēči, 7 km). Time required to complete the circular route ~ 3-5 h.
