Pauna hikingtrail



The Pauna hiking trail is leading to the culturally important Pauna farmhouse.
It starts at the Tipu schoolhouse. Walking along the trail you reach the beautiful meandering Halliste river.
If you wish to hike further and see more, turn left of the trail at the river. A sign will guide you to the Kaabake sauna. You can learn more about these "kaabake" at the sauna. Back at the hiking trail junction follow the picturesque riverbank towards Pauna farmhouse. Soon you walk through former cattle gates and reach a dam on the riverbank. It was build on the Pauna farm estate in the second half of the 19th century already. It was meant to protect fields in times of flood.
Keep walking along the dam and you arrive at the Pauna farm where the famous Estonian ideological leader Villem Reimann was born. Then the trail takes you back to the road along great alluvial meadows and, through the heart of Tipu, right back to the beginning of the trail. On your way you will pass the starting point for the Tõramaa river and several barn dwellings, and there you are, back at the schoolhouse.
Enjoy your walk!
